Yours truly got to know Sabrina Malheiros, daughter of Azymuth bassist Alex Malheiros, two years ago, when, on the occasion of her debut album's tenth anniversary, Far Out Recordings presented a deluxe reissue. And now there's 'Clareia', a brand new 11 track album once again produced by Daniel 'Venom' Maunick (son of Incognito front man Jean-Paul 'Bluey' Maunick). Where last time we still described Malheiro's sound as a mix of bossa nova, samba, hip-hop, r&b and jazz, the songs on 'Clareia' lean much more towards funk and disco (opener 'Celebrar', 'Sol, Ceu E Mar', 'Renascera', 'Porto Do Sol'), of course, still with that unmistakable samba-vibe (title track 'Clareia', 'Vai, Maria'). The result is the almost perfect soundtrack to a Brazilian summer making the listener long for a caipirinha on the beach of Ipanema!
