Would love to have this on cd. Hope a label will one day pick the release up. My exposure came via the brilliant Outro Tempo 2xcd set of odd Brazilian infused electro-new wave music.

Certainly, this is one of the most wanted brazilian records of the last times. A record that hides mysteries and many meanings and that gained its notoriety after the song "Kiuá" was used in the brilliant compilation called"Outro Tempo", of Music From Memory, as everyone already knows.

Andreá Daltro studied popular, isntrumental and erudite music for about 20 years and sings since 1971. Around 1979, the first version of Kiuá was made for the percussion group of the Federal University of Bahia, using marimba, xylophone, among other percussive instruments, as well as guitar. With regency of the teacher Ernest Widmer. This presentation was made at the college rectory.

It is at this point that Andreá Daltro has his first connection with Kiuá, which would later become a classic through his voice. Curiously, the music score was lost and Andréa had to sing in court, and only had three rehearsals to improve her vocal extension in the song. At that moment the score of the song "strolled" by Andrea's imagination. It was a moment of strong impact for her. She managed to sing without making a mistake, even though she had rehearsed only three times.

From this moment, Andréa begins to sing contemporary songs with vocal effects, which, according to her, were very lovely and memorable experiences.

In 1988, Andréa decided to launch his solo record, without financial resources and independently. She took out a bank loan to realize that dream, and never had any financial returns from that record, believe me. And he decided to make a new version of "kiuá", with use of DX7 synth and roland 606 electronic drums,different from the previous version (Sexteto do Beco), which was more acoustic. The record was recorded in three days.

The group of Bahia jazz called Grupo Garagem, very influenced by the musical aesthetics of Sexteto and the importance of the group in the musical scene in the State of Bahia, plays the record along with Andrea. The group consisted of Roberto Monsalve (synths), Ivan Bastos (bass), Ivan Houl (drums), Roninho (sax) and an old friend of Andreá on guitar, Mou Brasil. In addition to former musical partners, Sérgio Souto and Paulo Andrade.

Obviously, the track "Kiuá" is incredible and has been very run on dance floors from around the world. I love this track. However ,there are other awesome tracks in Lp - "Ponte Aérea" and "Flutuando"are just two examples. Indeed, note that the track "Flutuando" is instrumental in the record by Sexteto do Beco. In this solo album of Andréa this song won an excellent vocalized version.

Andréa released this record in December 1988 and since then had never played that repertoire live. Only one thousand copies were pressed and the record was not distributed in Brazil, it was restricted to the city of Salvador. That's why it's so hard to find. She sang "Kiuá" for the first time, thirty years later, last Saturday at the Dekmantel festival, in São Paulo. She participated in the Maria Rita (Stumpf) show. It was amazing! She told me after the show that she was very happy to see a young audience from around the world being touched by the energy of her music and would like to sing in another edition of the event in another country.

I believe that his imaginative and timeless repertoire deserves to be diffused, made feasible and revered. She is 70 years old and uses her voice as an instrument in a very inventive way. I think she has the power to do her show anywhere in the world. Anyone who knows your repertoire, has heard your voice, your records, knows that I am not talking bullshit.
