Two years after its domestic release , the Corpo Possível album crosses borders in another step to international recognition for the artist. Listen to “Imagem Em Mim.”
This year, the neo-soul sensation doesn’t come from North America or Australia. Hailing from the city of Goiâna in central Brazil, Bruna Mendez is on a par with the giants of the genre like SiR, Kaytranada and The Internet. Following releases that reflect the current Brazilian scene, the 180g and Disk Union labels have joined forces in an effort to export Bruna Mendez’s second album. We’ve seen acclaimed projects by the likes of Hermeto Pascoal & Grupo, Leonardo Marques and Xenia França, and now it’s Corpo Possível‘s turn to join the prestigious catalog, two years after a domestic release that caused waves.
Initially a lyricist and author, Mendez began her career in 2008 as a musician in local carioca bands. She released her first EP Pra Ela in 2014, followed by her debut album, O Mesmo Mar Que Nega a Terra Cede to Sua Calma, two years later. What followed was the elegant electronic textures, deep vocal timbres and funky accents of her second album, Corpo Possível. Far from the usual Brazilian standards, the young Bruna Mendez revealed an organic groove coupled with ethereal melodies on a sweet and futuristic soundscape.
The album will be available on September 10th, pre-order it here.
