Info for Canto da Sereia
The world of bossanova meets classical music for a unique album, born from the exceptional encounter of living legend of the Bossa Brazilian singer Toquinho and the international cellist Ophélie Gaillard.
Including standards alongside several exclusive songs, with original arrangements of the composer Gabriel Sivak, this present recording breathes the sweet fragrance of a warm summer night. The soft warmth of Ophélie Gaillard’s strings supports Toquinho’s soul-stirring whispers. Delicate harmonies and irresistible rhythms reveal subtly the essence of the bossa with its bright nostalgia and wistful swing at the rhythm of the beating heart.
Toquinho picks out the chords on his guitar as he murmurs the words of Vinicius de Moraes and proves that the poet found in this music the right echo of his soul: how can one resist to this bewitching song of the siren?
Ophélie Gaillard, cello
