Concert: Sessa (Sao Paulo, Brazil) & The Dead Shakers @ The Garage Cultural Center

Wednesday, August 28, 2019

Daydream Nation Productions is thrilled to present SESSA (Sao Paulo, Brazil) with The Dead Shakers Sessa is a long-time fixture of the American and Brazilian music scenes known for his collaborations with Yonatan Gat and co-founding acclaimed psych-rock group Garotas Suecas. Sessa's debut album Grandeza points to new, more subtle directions for Brazilian pop—a deep, minimalist, almost insinuated use of the rich textures and rhythms that define the songwriting history of Brazil, which Sessa now joins as one of its most promising new voices. Sessa’s songs are sung in Portuguese, with visceral, sensual lyrics. The music gets a deliberate minimalist treatment rarely found in contemporary Brazilian music, more reminiscent of the bareness of Leonard Cohen, with touches of tropicália, and a collaboration with the group Música de Selvagem that permeates the album with elements of spiritual and free jazz.
