This project aims to enable the recording, mixing, mastering and press of my second album «MALUNGO»
Who am I?
My name is Jabu. I am a songwriter and percussionist from Brazil. For the last 6 years I have been living in Barcelona, where I’ve absorbed the diverse musical influences this city has to offer. Reflecting on my time here, I realized that my music, which used to be almost entirely influenced by Brazilian rhythms, has undergone such a transformation that it deserves to be recorded! So in November I’ll start to record my second album, «MALUNGOto celebrate the diversity and mix of incredible people and artists with whome I had the privillege to cross paths!
Telling you a bit more…
I never imagined what awaited me when I moved to Barcelona in 2008 to study percussion at the Liceu. As soon as I arrived I felt that the city had a special magnetism attracting many amazing people. At the same time, I also found that different dynamics in the city made it really difficult for many projects to take off. Too many get slowed down and lose motivation.
In spite of that, lot of great things happened, beuatiful projects were born, Mandacaru
Tambor de Saia and also beautiful kids! (yes! I have three kids born in Barcelona). All these experiences, just made me realize and accept that some things are just meant to be, so it’s important to just learn how to play with your cards!
So I decided to make a new record reflecting this new stage of my life: brazilian music transformed and influenced by mediterranean vibes, as well as all the other worlds that live here in this city!
The album speaks of the transformation that I lived and amazing friends, artists and people I crossed paths with. I composed new songs, with them in mind, and invited them to record.
I will have the pleasure to share my music and collaborate with artists listed below and many others to be confirmed, MelSeme, MuMbana,
Aleix Tobias,Sara Pi Forró Afiado, Sol Homar, Pedro Bastos João, Luiz Rocha, Cecília Debergh, SonoroDub
To weave this transcontinental web I invited MauricioRibeiro, an artist who I admire and respect a lot and already worked with on my first album. Knowing me before this overseas journey (back in Brasil) I think he will do a great job at understanding where I come from and how far I’ve gone. He will certainly enjoy working with these new influences and nuances.
