SIMETRIA: Bo Kasper in Brazil, download

8.99eur

For us, symmetry means a mixing and matching, a balancing of (often very different) parts across regions, languages and cultures. To understand symmetry is to involve oneself in an emotional complicity with it, to see the pattern and comprehend its bringing together of elements. As here, where the cryptically-crafted songs of the Swedish megastar Bo Sundström and his band, Bo Kaspers Orkester, are dissolved by the mercury of sympathy and love and reconstituted in a Brazilian milieu: Edu’s lyrics keeping faith with the experience of Bo Sundström’s lyrics and Toninho’s arrangements giving them a new environment in which to flourish. But although Brazilian Aeroplane is a band devoted to bridging cultural differences, the simetria we seek is something which can only be completed with the aid of the sympathetic ear and mindset of the listener. If, then, through the joy of reliving the music of Bo Kaspers Orkester, these settings help to melt down old binaries and stereotypes or position that listener in a new place, then the album will have done its job.

Zero e um (ett och noll) Ela é tão linda quando dorme (Hon är så söt)
Vai melhorar (Det blir bättre sen) No fundo do copo (I botten på glaset)
Antes que tudo suma (Innan allt försvinner) Aquele que você quis (En man du tyckte om)
Dança do paraíso (Dansa på min grav) Jamais morreremos (Vi kommer aldrig att dö)
Carta (Brev) Nada (Ingenting alls)
