With the opening ceremony of Europalia Brazil rapidly approaching, it's no more than natural that we pay some attention to the musical diversity of that country and just by chance Niterói based Andreia Dacal's 'Paradoxos EP' just landed in our mailbox. In terms of reggae Brazil has always steered its own course and 'Paradaxos EP' is no exception. In a kind of spoken-word style not all that different from rapping, Andreia fires off her socio-critical lyrics, one time backed by a roots rhythm, another by deeper dub vibes. For the time being, she's still labeled an "upcoming artist" and from the two songs in different versions on this EP we can't conclude all that much yet, but make note of her name!
