EKATERINOSLAV – NEW YORK – SAO PAULO

Nicole’s Raízes is a recording that reveals its secrets unhurriedly. There is a deceptive simplicity in a collection of songs in various Brazilian styles and rhythms. But to those who know Jewish music, many of these melodies and stories will soon begin to sound specially familiar. Just as for those who love Brazilian music, some of the sounds and grooves that felt so comfortably well-worn are not quite what they seemed.
