Lucas Santtana (BR)
For over two decades, Lucas Santtana has been exploring the abundant sonic possibilities to be found in the interstices between afro-dub, ska, tropicana, psychedelic samba and baile funk in a string of influential albums that have helped redefine Música Popular Brasileira.
On his latest album, the singer, composer, producer and elemental force of the Brazilian new wave from Salvador de Bahia has returned to the roots of the Brazilian guitar tradition of the 1950s to deliver a post-tropicalist electro-acoustic pop album with themes addressing the rise of reactionary politics and its dangerous disregard for human rights and the environment.
His next album ‘O Paraiso‘ will be released April 2022 on Nø Førmat!
