‘Afro Bossa’ features the sort of innovation that both The Ipanemas and Far Out Recordings are known for. Joe explains the ethos of the new album: “I wanted ‘Afro Bossa’ to combine the attitude of the first Ipanemas record with the sort of musical accomplishment that comes from over 40 years experience.” Highlights include:

  • ‘Sertao’ & ‘Bosco’: Afro-sambas characterised by chants in Afro Brazilian dialects.
  • ‘Bambui’: African soul with Eastern flavour where the traditional Brazilian stringed Berimbau meets Indian tablas.
  • ‘Aqui Da Tudo Certo’: an upbeat samba with complex arrangements that was inspired by a trip Wilson made to London. It features strings that wouldn’t sound out of place on a 4 Hero production.
  • ‘Espraiado’: Dedicated to the city of the same name – a deeply spiritual place near the City Of God and one of the first African settlements in Brazil.
  • ‘Sereno’: A traditional samba featuring Wilson’s classic lyrical style that’s made him a household name in Brazil.
