10 Songs, 38 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

Mia Doi Todd had long been inspired by Brazilian music and culture, and upon meeting drummer/percussionist Mauricio Takara in 2009, the two struck up a friendship that led to joint performances. In 2014, the L.A.-based Todd spent 10 days in Sao Paulo, Brazil, recording an album of her favorite Brazilian songs concerning nature. An all-Brazilian band with Fabiano do Nascimento on seven-string nylon guitar, Takara and Rogerio Martins on percussion, and Meno del Picchia on bass worked with Todd in bringing songs that were the soundtrack to their lives to new life. As usual, Todd provides her beautifully nuanced vocals to well-known and obscure Brazilian tunes.
