Carla Alexandar

Poesia

MURENA RECORDS

Released: 28th October 2002 | 10 track album
'Poesia' is the beautiful Brazilian chanteuse Carla Alexander´s solo album on Murena Records. a mellow, chilled and melodic album with producer Morten Varano. These ten songs are the fruits of their collaboration over the last two years and are a fair indication of the stunning vocals and melodies that are a part of the wonderful history and tradition of Brazilian music that she grew up with. From the age of seventeen Carla Alexandar has toured the whole world . First as a professional dancer for Jorge Ben and later as a singer. In 1999 she was playing with the legendary Brazilian band Daúde at the Roskilde Festival. Here she meets up with her old frien the percussionist Fernando Negalé that convince her to stay in Denmark.This is the beginning of a new era in Carla's life. Soon she is introduced to Morten Varano (that beside being part of Puddu Varano & Los Chicharrons: is running Murena Records). They start working together on a project that is build on Carla´s poems, Brazilian music tradition, electronics and breaks. The first result was É Assim that was essential leftfield single in 7 magazine. The lyrics of Carla Alexander are modern, conscious and based on her written poems. It´s about leaving Brazil and living in a foreign country in Scandinavia. About how it shapes you senses and you see things different. About the memories about brazil with the samba, dancing and the Caipirinha-drinks. With a varied interest in new styles of music D&B, Break Beat and House as well as her Brazillian influences it is easy to see why DJs such as Kruder & Dorfmeister, LTJ Bukem, Coldcut and Phil Mison have all picked up on her previous records.'
