THE RETURN TO SAMBA
Following up on the digital platform success of 'Mera Ilusão' in 2018, Brazilian born singer/songwriter, Caro Pierotto, returns to her Samba roots with 'Mal Acostumado', the first single from her new album 'Sambalismo', to be released next May.
'Mal Acostumado' starts with an infectious Samba Reggae rhythm and the powerhouse horn section consisting of Marlon Sette on trombone, Jorge Continentino on saxes and Diogo Gomes on trumpet and.
The groove is provided by the rock solid rhythm section made up by producer Grecco Buratto on Cavaquinho, Alberto Continentino on Bass, Daniel Clarke on Keys and Caro's long time collaborators JP Mourão on 7-string Guitar and Felipe Fraga on Drums and Percussion.
The song is a commentary, inspired by the easy life lead by her beloved dog Max, but can easily relate to the lives of many spoiled humans out there :)
Caro’s presence is felt as soon as she strikes her first note, and her music has found audiences all over the globe. She sings originals and covers in Portuguese, Spanish and English.
Her most recent album, ‘Em Português’, was just released back in May 2020 and made it to the ballot for this year's Grammy Awards for Best Global Music Album.
Her latest music video for the single ‘Além do Mar’ has been shortlisted for the prestigious Music Professionals Awards in Brazil in the Best Music Video category.
She has toured in Indonesia, France, Portugal, Mexico, Canada, United Kingdom, Ecuador and Colombia, worked with world renowned producer Pharrell Williams for the movie ‘Trash’ by acclaimed director Stephen Daldry and was featured on Tom Schnabel’s renowned playlist ‘Rhythm Planet’.
With a captivating vintage voice and a repertoire that includes samba, forró, reggae, soul and pop, Caro Pierotto defies labels and expresses her art without musical borders in genres, always focusing on spreading love, hope and healing through her music.
