Just a Touch: Sonzeira with Gabriel Moura and "Um Toque"
The random song today comes from a project put together by London-based producer, record label owner, record collector and DJ Gilles Peterson. A longtime fan of Brazilian music, Peterson assembled a collection of Brazilian musicians under the name of Sonzeira and recorded in Rio de Janeiro with the likes of Seu Jorge and Elza Soares. The album features old and new songs, and was hailed as a classic by The Guardian. This song, Um Toque, is our favorite from the album and features an upbeat Carnival tempo and vocals by Gabriel Moura. You can find Um Toque on Sonzeira's album Brasil Bam Bam Bam, released in 2014. Give it a listen - you will start your day, or end your day, or pick up your day with a smile on your face and dancing in your feet.
