Mental Abstrato – UZOMA

Also Available On: CD UZOMA + Digital

UZOMA is new album from Mental Abstrato Project. From the African dialect Igbo, it means “the good way to be traveled”. After eight years of
the debut album “Pure Essence”, the second comes more mature and with the consistency of good children of Hip Hop, delving deeper into their references, ranging from Samba-Jazz, Neo Soul to the musicality of ancestral matrix African music, resulting in an urban and contemporary jazz record from the suburbs of São Paulo to the World.

The album was recorded in Red Bull Music Studios São Paulo, produced by Mental Abstracto, with co-production, composition and direction of arrangements by Marcelo Monteiro, with the support of great instrumentalists of the instrumental scene.

Mela9 – Diaspora II: An Afro​-​Brazilian Love Affair

Continuing along the global pathway of the Diaspora, this project has been in the works for quite some time. The process of creating it sent me on a path of musical and self-discovery that was as unexpected as it was rewarding. In this installment of the Diaspora Series, we delve into the rhythms of Africans in the Americas: South America specifically, and Brazil to be precise.

Soon to be released in limited edition cassette format, with a short novel (written by me). I hope you all enjoy. Peace and Blessings.
