The talented young Brazilian singer, songwriter, and guitarist Reinaldo Brahn plays rich and complex music with a killer band and exotic percussion by famed Jim Brock.
Brasileiro Soul is a collection of 14 original songs penned by Brazilian guitarist and singer Reinaldo Brahn. The deep heritage of his guitar style, along with his rich unmistakable voice, make the music as provocative as the land that cultivated it.
Veteran percussionist and producer Jim Brock refers to Reinaldo Brahn as "the new voice of Brazil".
This young guitarist grew up listening to the jazzy samba music of his native Brazil. On Brasileiro Soul he weaves that heritage with new Brazilian pop styles.
Reinaldo left the renowned Brazilian vocal group Soul Makube to embark on a solo career. Gathering influences from Gilberto Gil, Djavan, and Caetano Veloso, he began touring his original music throughout Brazil, then brought his music to the US in 2006.
This music has widespread audience appeal, and the sonics from Grammy Award-winning engineer Keith Johnson ensures enthusiastic reception by audiophiles and music lovers.
Recorded at the venerable Reflection Sound Studios in Charlotte, NC, the scene of several past RR successes.
