Celebrated Brazilian Pianist And Multi-Instrumentalist Ricardo Bacelar Releases New Album Congênito
By: ARE GROUP
The release of Congênito marks a significant milestone for Bacelar and is his first recording in which he recorded, produced, sang, and played all of the instruments exclusively. As a result, he spent considerable time researching proper recording technologies, planning and writing many arrangements, and determining the most suitable instruments to feature. He states, "All of the tracks are acoustic without loops, and I played all of the instruments and recorded them live without sequencers, programming, or drum machines. I developed a blend of textures and sounds using various instruments including percussion, acoustic piano, guitars, Brazilian flutes, and exotic instruments (primarily flutes and percussion) from Japan and India."
On Congênito, Bacelar reimagines classic Brazilian music composed by numerous legendary Brazilian masters including Chico Buarque, Gilberto Gil, Caetano Veloso, Djavan, Ivan Lins, Lenine, and others. Except for two songs in English, "She Walks" and "Preciso Perdoar," all of the songs are in Portuguese.
The album is scheduled for release on August 5 on Jasmin Records and will be available on all major digital platforms.
