A colorful sound and a multifaceted repertoire brings the fusion of Brazilian rhythms to the textures of samplers and synthesizers.
Iria Braga dresses up, sheds her skin, feeds on her own emotions and takes them to the stage in the form of music, a scene. Thus was born IRIDESCENTE. The artist’s new album and show brings a sound and multifaceted color that is different from her first CD. Between acoustic and electronic instruments, and the fusion of Brazilian rhythms to the textures of samplers and synths, Iria presents an authorial repertoire in which she signs several compositions.
Iridescence, in addition to alluding to the artist’s name, is a phenomenon that reflects the colors of the rainbow on certain surfaces, popularly known as “iridescence”; According to Caetano Veloso, “people are there to shine, not to die of hunger”. Poetically inspired by these contexts, the lyrics have an existentialist profile and talk about assuming one’s own identity in a contemporary world full of challenges, about the multiple ways of being that inhabit us, about love and life.
