Release notes

With roots established in brazilian, jazz and electronic music, Lavoura is a group of seven members: producers, arrangers, beatmakers, musicians, visual artists and inventors. The release of the singles "MM Moods" and "Ametista" marks the group's return to recording studios four years after the album "Photosynthesis". In the series of singles that integrate the project "MirĂ£" (indigenous futurism in Tupi-Guarani), Lavoura shows researches related to African matrix, Latin music and psychedelic funk. The use of analog synthesizers associated with percussion and the hybrid drums, with electronic and acoustic parts, produces a peculiar sonority. To this are added electric piano, saxophones, flute, guitar, bass and beats. The result is a rhythm-referenced, cinematic, and constantly mutating sound. "MM Moods", composed by Marcelo Monteiro, expresses the Brazilianness of Lavoura. Already "Ametista", by Fernando TRZ, begins with ambiences to explode in an avant-garde groove.
