(DUO and TRIO ft. Moreno Veloso)
Samba, Bossa, Flamenco (ES-BR)
eLeTá is a musical dialogue between different cultures and starts from the universal essence that is voice and percussion. Formed by Elena Diz, singer, percussionist and composer from Cordoba (Spain) and Tamima Brasil, percussionist, drummer and composer from Salvador (Brazil). The duo combines the legacy of typical Brazilian soul instruments such as pandeiro, berimbau and atabaque with the guitar and rhythms of the flamenco percussion with a touch of electronic sounds and samplers, bringing up a universe of creation where boundaries come together.
In this tour of tone that range from subtle to explosive, the duo eLeTá in “El Mundo” takes you to a journey to the deep roots of Brazilian and flamenco percussion, passing through popular and contemporary sounds such as samba chula, coco, dub, jazz, African rhythm, tango, bulería and alegría.
The duo’s repertoire includes songs of their own authorship such as “La Ventolera”, “Mi Baiana”, “Almíbar” and “Como un Sueño” and eLeTá interpretation of the great Caetano Veloso, Vinícius de Moraes and Baden Powell’s afros-sambas, Lia de Itamaracá ciranda, Biu Roque cavalo-marinho and others.
Moreno Veloso, son of Brazilian music icon Caetano Veloso, began singing at the age of three, improving his natural skills while learning how to play classical guitar six years later. Veloso made his songwriting debut in 1982 with “Um Canto de Afoxé Para Bloco do lle,” which is featured on Caetano Veloso’s Cores, Nomes. Moreno Veloso became a Latin percussionist while still a teenager, touring with his father and Gilberto Gil before playing cello for Carlinhos Brown. Even when he began attending physics classes in the early ’90s, his interest in music was stronger. Around the same time, the young and promising artist built his own recording studio, mixing music for TV shows and plays.
Music Typewriter After a live performance along with Alexandre Kassin and Domenico Lancellotti, playing Brazilian rhythms combined with electronic elements, they decided to make an experimental album, Music Typewriter, produced by Andrés Levin. The record’s untranslated title, Maquina de Escrever Musica +2, was a big hit in Brazil, and was followed by Lancellotti +2’s Sincerely Hot in 2003 and a DJ remix of Moreno’s recording in 2004. In 2007, Kassin +2’s Futurismo concluded the original trilogy.
Abraçaço In addition to his own work, Veloso worked with his father both on the road and in the studio producing three records by him, including 2012’s award-winning smash Abraçaço, which he co-produced with guitarist Pedro Sá. After 13 years, Moreno issued his sophomore recording, Coisa Boa, in September of 2014. The set, recorded all over the world, featured a revolving cast of 30 musicians, including Sá, Arto Lindsay, Melvin Gibbs, Daniel Johns, Rodrigo Bartolo, Rodrigo Amarante and vocalist Takako Minekawa.
