Clarice & Sérgio Assad: Relíquia


Really lovely sounds from the father/daughter team of Clarice and Sergio Assad – a pair who would already be great as a musical duo, even without a family connection! Sergio plays acoustic guitar throughout – with a fullness of sound, but also the lighter, lyrical sensibility that makes him a perfect match for Clarice’s vocals – which have that mix of jazz and more personal expression we love in our favorite Brazilian singers from the 70s(…)

“Badi Assad belongs to the most talented Brazilian songwriters and can look back upon a carrier that’s been lasting for 20 years. On “Hatched”, the singer and guitarist demonstrates her distinctive love of experimentation by mixing southern American rhythms with Pop and Rock, making her 12th record one of the best in her carrier.”

“Skrillex and Badi Assad, that’s a convergence of two worlds. Driving electronic beats on the one side, a jazz musician with an acoustic guitar on the other. But “Stranger” is one of the most successful approaches on “Hatched”. […] It honours both, as Skrillex’ compositional strength becomes clear and Assad can show that she won’t be fooled by his electronic gadgets. With “Little Lion Man” by Mumford & Sons, Assad reduces a mainstream pop song to its very basics and even uses the song’s four-letter-words with more charm and irony.”
