CD: Lucas Santtana - Sem Nostalgia

A Brazilian album that subtly mixes the traditional and the avant garde

Lucas Santtana: a gifted singer-songwriter influenced by everything from Radiohead to Tom Ze

I first heard Bahia-born Lucas Santtana on the best compilation of contemporary Brazilian music of the past couple of years, Oi! A nova musica Brasileira. His track “Hold Me In”, an acoustic slice of bossa nova, was a quiet interlude amonst all the dance, electronica and rock tracks. But it didn’t really give much indication of what an adventurous musical talent he might be.
