Caro Pierotto releases bilingual project and celebrates her music without borders
With songs in Portuguese and English, the new double album reveals the singer’s connection with the rhythms of
Brazil and the United States.
Brazilian artist based in Los Angeles, California, Caro Pierotto is releasing on May 8th the double album: “Caro Pierotto in Portuguese”, with seven tracks, and “Caro Pierotto in English”, with four tracks. The bilingual project reinforces the artist's ability to express her art without borders, mixing rhythms ranging from xote to reggae, through pop and ballads with an American soul touch.
“This project celebrates my fluidity through different musical genres and my independence as an artist”, says the singer about the first album with only her own compositions. The Portuguese EP includes the single Papel Passado, a contagious xote released in February 2018, accompanied by a beautiful video clip that includes the actors who inspired the song.
There is also the nostalgic Mera Ilusão, a classic Samba released in September 2018, and selected for the renowned playlist “Samba de Roda” curated by
Spotify, alongside great names of the Brazilian samba scene like Rogê,
Maria Rita and Criolo.
In English, the songs Guess What, a romantic pop ballad, and
It Starts With Me, a groovy reggae soul, are both filled with encouragement for personal empowerment.
Produced by Grecco Buratto (Shakira, Gwen Stefani), the project has a team of musicians starring in the international market: Brendan Buckley and Léo Costa on drums, Felipe Fraga on drums and percussion, Erik Kertes and Isaias Elpes on bass, JP Mourão on guitars, Daniel Mandelman on keyboards, Arturo Solar and Stephen Bradley on trumpets.
Impeccably mixed by the multi Grammy winners Gus Borner and Justin Moshkevich (Roberto Carlos, Fito Paez, Santana) and mastered by the also multi Grammy winner, Robert Carranza (Tiago Iorc, Seu Jorge).
Released simultaneously, EPs in Portuguese and English are available on all main digital platforms, under the Brazilian award-winning alternative label, YB Music.
"Caro's vocals are as authentic as her personality.
There's a light that shines right through her and her music."
