Track of the Day: Aline Frazão - "O Que Ela Quer"

Leave a Comment

While most exposure to Portugese-language music here in the United States arrives via Brazil, Aline Frazão's debut from last year Clave Bantu reminds us of the rich trans-African musical experience.  Frazão's own heritage is from Angola, while she currently resides in Spain.  You're able to hear a rich mix of intercontinental heritage in "O Que Ela Quer" which we're featuring today.  The smooth bassa nova finger picking erupts with a rhythmic Tropicaliaesque underpinning.  It's an enthralling melange of styles wrought together through Aline Frazão's exquisite vocals.
