Treme by Gaby Amarantos
Released: Apr 2012
Label: Som Livre
The first strains of Gaby Amarantos’s debut hits you like a jolt of pure, exhilarating electricity, a wild, frenetic blast of electro-beats, raw energy and Amarantos’s bold, husky voice. Ride that current through “Ela Tá Beba Doida” and again on other tracks, but the techno brava singer takes a panoramic view of her genre and Brazilian pop in general. Treme tries out spaghetti rumba (“Ex Mai Love”), strutting baile funk (“Galera Da Laje”), electro-merengue and country-fried cumbia with an Afro-pop soul -- and every second pops and crackles. Would you expect anything less from that album cover?
