Memoria is an album about my memories, my hometown, the scent and flavours of my childhood, things Ive read, movies Ive watched at the cinema and my love for music. Its about going back home, re-establishing a link with the past and recalling cheerful and happy memories. Memoria refers specifically to the regions of Minais Gerais and the Brazilian northeast, its hot climate, the religiousness of the people and its faith in miracles, calling to mind images of mysterious and surreal popular tales, where time flows slowly in an intimate dimension."" Tocos words briefly depict the musical content of Memoria. This work represents his artistical growth from the previous album Outro Lugar, which was partially recorded in Rio de Janeiro with Roberto Menescal and other musicians from the carioca scene and highlighted elements of bossa and samba jazz from the 60s. Guarapiranga, a song from that album, has been recently featured in the soundtrack of the movie Silver Linings Playbook, which received 7 nominations and one award at the 2013 Academy Award ceremony. In this album the artist doesnt abandon that tradition nor his passion for Rio De Janeiro and its pictoresque musicians, but explores the musical world of artists that influenced him and had inspired his artistical path: Edu Lobo, Milton Nascimento, Arthur Verocai, Geraldo Vandré, Sergio Ricardo e Dorival Caymmi. Minas, a poetic hommage to Minas Gerais, opens this magical chapter, followed by gems recalling the life in the northeast, the geographical distance between the inland and the litoral as the distance of an old friendship or a lost love. Cigana, Versos Perdidos, O Tempo è Aqui, Vendeval, Rainha: here is the inner Brazil, far from the sea and not always jolly. Toco brings us on a journey that ideally culminates in Divino and Bate, intimate and romantic original compositions. But he reminds us that Brazil means party as well, samba, joy of life, with tracks like Meu Rio, Manè, Sem Par and Breque Bom. The artist banded together with several musicians from his country: Robert and Eduardo Taufic from Natal, a city located in the northeast of Brazil, Mauro Martins, Edu Hebling, Marquinho Baboo, Ligiana Costa and Selton. Nina Miranda, already known to the public for her collaboration with Smoke City and Da Lata, joined this cast of amazing artists. The album has been produced by Stefano Tirone, the mind behind S-Tone Inc. After the previous collaborations on Instalaçao Do Samba (Schema, 2004) and Outro Lugar (Schema, 2007) this album confirms the artistical compatibility and affinity between the two artists.

His "Outro Lugar" was brilliant unfortunately this new one much less so. Obrigado.
