Brazilian singer-songwriter and composer Rogério Baraquet has release his new EP Ilha.
Both lo-fi and room-filling at once, this is an EP from a South American music pioneer. Rogerio Barquet clearly knows how to blend electronic beats with acoustic guitar sounds, particularly those from his homeland of Brazil.
Ilha was a step into the unknown for me on first listen, but I was quickly gripped by each of the track compelling and curious rhythms. Barquet has produced something really intriguing here and as the EP moves forward, there’s an undeniable uniqueness and power to his music.
There plenty to get your ears around here so have a listen above if you haven’t already.
