Elza Soares – A Mulher Do Fim Do Mundo

★★★☆☆ = Good!

Sounds like?
Samba Punk

Scorching evening on the esplanade

A curious record, original to my ears. I’ve always enjoyed elements of samba but its a genre that seems to appeal to purists and is stuck in the past, all roads leading to Jobim. Here the band and writing has a punk direction (of the south american variety) but with a samba flavor. She was 80 when she record this so there is an element of maturity. It’s this juxtaposition of such a mature voice being coupled with an edgy sound that gives it the appeal. I’ve often felt frustrated by the mellowing of artists catalogs as they get older so it’s nice to hear something where someone is pushing themselves in a younger direction.

I’ll be honest this isn’t the type of thing I plan on revisiting much but there’s something about the sound that I find interesting. Worth a listen.
