Release notes

Here comes a new (the first for us) album by a Brazilian band Mercado De Peixe. In this new work, the band approaches the folk culture of the countryside of São Paulo to the dancefloors and to the global ghettos. Digital cumbia, africanism, garage rock, psychedelic rhythms, eletropical and post-bossa nova are some of the elements present in the eighth disc of Mercado de Peixe. The sextet is pioneer in merging pop and folk culture in São Paulo's countryside. They use typical instruments like the ten strings guitar (viola caipira), accordion and their lyrics are inspired by "urban tales" from Bauru, the town where the band was created. Besides the musical references, there's also connections with nature. It is a result of a series of immersions carried out the band in Brazilian Cerrado landscape. Isolated from civilization, the band composed and made the arrangements for all of the songs. The album has guest participation of the singer and guitarist Saulo Duarte (winner of Prêmio da Música Brasileira 2015), percussionist Rômulo Nardes (from Bixiga 70 band), the singers Tika and Kika, percussionist Junião and multi-instrumentalist Pipo Pegoraro, who also mixed the work. "Água da Faca" was recorded with the support of the Government of São Paulo, by the cultural programme Proac.
