São Paulo–based artist João Rocha has shared the third and final preview of his upcoming debut album as dadá Joãozinho. “Pai e Mãe” follows previously released singles “Cuidado!” and “Ô Lulu” from the forthcoming tds bem Global, which is out on September 1 via Innovative Leisure. Each song offers a different look at Joãozinho’s singular talent, and on “Pai e Mae” the artist introduces an entrancing samba with delightful lo-fi effects that meld with a renegade organ sound and the pulsing underbelly of bass-heavy percussion. The concoction is at once alien and delightfully inviting.
Regarding the video, Rocha says, “For this samba, that carries so much of our music’s tradition, and still sounds fresh, I wanted to strip things down and communicate through the rawness of the body language. Had my parents join the studio session, that was an emotional moment. I wrote this song about an episode we lived together, so it was a closing cycle to have them. This minimalist work in video expands the meanings of the album for me, that sometimes sounds so massive. Put things in a new perspective.”
