Lucas Santtana has been exploring the abundant sonic possibilities to be found in the interstices between afro-dub, ska, tropicana, psychedelic samba and baile funk in a string of influential albums that have helped redefine Música Popular Brasileira. Now the singer, composer, producer and elemental force of the Brazilian new wave from Salvador de Bahia has returned to the roots of the Brazilian guitar tradition of the 1950s to deliver a post-tropicalist electro-acoustic pop album with themes addressing the rise of reactionary politics and its dangerous disregard for human rights and the environment. Santtana has chosen an intimate setting to pit light against dark times. As he says, “We’re living in a time in which everybody is talking loud. I thought the time had come to whisper into people’s ears.”
