Lembrança di Emilio Santiago (1946-2013).

Read "Lembrança di Emilio Santiago (1946-2013)." reviewed by Maurizio Zerbo

Scomparso il venti marzo di due anni fa all'età di sessantasette anni, Emilio Santiago è stato uno dei più sublimi interpreti della canzone popolare brasiliana. Emerso alla metà degli anni '70, l'artista carioca si è andato via via imponendo come vocalist originale, creativamente colloquiale nelle pirotecniche evoluzioni ritmico-melodiche. Il suo disco d'esordio (Emilio Santiago, 1975) è ...

Yotam: Brasil

Read "Brasil" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

A single letter separates the English and Portuguese spellings of the world's fifth largest country, but that letter distinguishes between an outsider's view and the way that an insider takes it all in. Brazil is for tourists, but Brasil is for those initiated in the musical ways of this South American land of wonder. While Israeli ...

Brazilian music is tricky. It must be approached carefully as its mellow understatement can be vulnerable to sterility in production and blandness in execution. Brasil, by Israeli guitarist Yotam Silberstein (now known solely as “Yotam") is plagued by both attributes. It is quite difficult to appreciate the competency of the players with whom ...
