Each new record by Domenico Lancellotti (1972, Brazil) must be celebrated as a
little gift. The Rio de Janeiro-born, a demanded drummer (regular musician for
Gilberto Gil) and one of the most inspired contemporary songwriters in his
country, Domenico owns a short but stunning catalog, either solo or along with
his pals Kassin and Moreno Veloso (+2). 'Raio' means his comeback three years
after the hailed 'The Good Is A Big God' for Luaka Bop. A brilliant new collection
of songs recorded from his new home in Lisbon, where Lancellotti's musical
parameters continue the path of his rich musical universe, that is, his personal
update on all the best music the MPB has provided, with Joao Donato or Milton
Nascimento as main references, sailing always through seductive and playful
trademark orchestrations. Domenico explains the reasons on 'Raio'...
“In 2018, Lúcia Koch invited me to set up an art installation for the Kansas City
Biennial.
We chose a vacant lot in the ancient black neighbourhood, the same place where
Charlie Parker was born, and the first black newspaper was founded in a building
close to this lot full of weeds and trash.
For this project I created 6 weeded and cleaned sound mushrooms that were
buried in the ground. Each mushroom was made of 5 speakers set up in circles,
with one of the bass speakers in the middle.
In order to get an idea of the complete display of the musical themes, people
should move around.
Some of the tracks on this album were part of this installation which we called
Dynamo!
"I moved to Portugal in 2019 and from here I kept recording. I was almost done
with the record when the COVID-19 crisis arose, therefore I started working
remotely, Nina Miranda sang two songs from his home in London, the Polish
pianist Piotr Zabrodsky recorded piano and keys also from his home in Warsaw,
Daniel Carvalho mixed and masterized the album at his studio in Rio de Janeiro.
This record, called Raio, was developed since then.
It is a record about permanent transformation. Everything needs to change, that
is all”

"Unique and brilliant sound" -
SOUNDS OF THE UNIVERSE.

"Like the tropicalistas, Lancellotti is too engaged with what?s
happening around him to turn to a reactionary regionalism"
