Baia releases album including eight Bob Dylan songs with a Bossa Nova touch
Living in the United States since 2017, with a 25-year career started in 1992 in the city of Rio de Janeiro (RJ) as the lead singer of band “Baia & Rockboys”, Baia gives credit to producer Sandro Albert for the so called “globalized sound” that is the main characteristic of the album.
Brazilian musicians (like drummer João Viana) and American musicians (like percussionist Bashiri Johnson) were invited to play in this first album with English language songs. The intention was to create a New York atmosphere. Two singers from Brooklyn, Iara Negrette and Pam Steebler, emphasize such idea in the vocals.
“My humble intention is to pay a tribute to Bob Dylan and touch the heart of those who love his music and Bossa Nova by offering a combination of styles that is pure alchemy”, explains Baia.
The album “Baia Bossa Dylan” includes the songs “You’re a big girl now” (1975), “Mama, you’ve been on my mind” (1991), “Blowin’ in the wind” (1963), “Jokerman” (1983), “Simple twist of fate” (1975), “Knocking on heaven’s door” (1973), “Lay lady lay” (1969) and “You’re gonna make me lonesome when you go” (1975).
