Luar Do Sertão 2 - Irmãs Galvão

Luar Do Sertão 2 - Irmãs Galvão by Irmas Galvao
Released: Sep 2009
Label: RCA RECORDS LABEL
This duo is one of sertaneja’s relatively few female acts and a strong example of the genre’s middle era (1950s-1970s). This album is a perfect snapshot of that era: The women’s throaty, velvety vocals glide (almost yodel) over wistful accordions, floating folkloric harps, bright mariachi horns and, especially, lilting, swaying rural rhythms. The ladies can spin from playful (the bouncing “Rincão Guarani”) to plaintive (the mournful “Triste Lembrança”) with a grace as smooth and manicured as their blonde curls. The slightly chaotic folkloric percussion on “Quando A Saudade Se For” is a treat.
