A Letter from the Space
This is a smooth and seamless album of
contemporary worldbeat music, with elements of
funk, lounge, jazz and ambient melded together
with avant-garde electronica, laying over exotic
classic Brazilian beats and sorrowful traditional
violin. “A Letter From the Space” is in some sense
André Henriquez 's personal album - for there he
invented a new style, explored new ways to deal
with the violin served as a main instrument -
used conventionally, within the realm of a known
musical territory. The compositions on this album
received the laurel for their complexity,
innovation and ingenuity. Listening to this album
again and again, we can't help thinking that
themes, melodies, riffs and small pearls and
jewels of compositions - could serve as a basis
for 10 new albums, if extended, if improvised
over, if copied and modified. Indeed, the album is
quite dense, and requires your full concentration.
However, it's also very appealing to many musical
tastes, it has a great atmosphere, conjuring up
the cool and subtle sensuality that Brazilian
music has long been prized for, but with funky
beats and basslines to give it a contemporary
edge. Close your eyes and sway to the music.
