    Sessa

    Folk

    Grandeza is the brilliant debut album of Brazil-born artist Sessa. A long-time fixture of both the
    American and Brazilian music scenes, known for collaborating with NY guitar legend Yonatan
    Gat, and his co-founding of São Paulo psych-funk combo Garotas Suecas, Sessa now shares
    his own musical vision of “super sick modern Brazilian vibes ... touching on cosmic jazz, psych,
    and tropicália,” as put by music-connoisseurs at Light in the Attic.
    His songs are sung in Portuguese, with visceral, sexual lyrics in the vain of Caetano Veloso and
    melodic flourishes not unlike those of Tom Jobim. However, the music gets a deliberate
    minimalist treatment rarely found in contemporary Brazilian music, more reminiscent of the
    bareness of Leonard Cohen.
    Sessa's concerts are already stuff of legend in Brazil, as he takes the stage accompanied solely
    by female backing choir and Afro-Brazilian percussion. While the songs often deal with subjects
    such as the sensual body and spiritual transcendence, the music points to new, more subtle
    directions for World pop music in 2019 – a deep, minimalist, almost insinuated use of the
    endlessly rich textures and rhythms that define the songwriting history of Brazil, which Sessa
    now joins as one of the most promising new voices.
