Hermeto Pascoal releases independent album in honor of forró
The artist Hermeto Pascoal launched the album “Hermeto Pascoal e sua visão original do forró” this month. Recorded in 1999 in Recife, the album has 17 tracks and special guests such as Alceu Valença, João Cláudio Moreno, Marina Elali, among others.
The disc is a composer’s independent release through the Scubidu Music label and is available on all digital platforms. With the intention of paying homage to the musical genre and showing his compositions, the musician plays accordion in all the tracks. “It’s not just to listen to, but also to dance”, Hermeto says.
The artist is the author of three of the four songs with lyrics on the album, being “Uriama” played by Alceu Valença.
The Scubidu Music is part of the Brasil Music Exchange (BME), a Brazilian music export project carried out through a partnership between Brasil, Música & Artes (BM&A) and the Brazilian Trade and Investment Promotion Agency (Apex-Brasil).
