Orelha Negra uses the sleeve cover technique (sleeveface.com) as a way to bring up the image of a collective enhancing the core and prominence of this project, which is their music. A MPC, a pair of Technics turntables, Drums, Keybords, Bass and Rhythm guitar. United becomes living tissue that emanates groove beats, samples, loops and a sound of their own. Orelha Negra is the result of putting together pieces of a puzzle.
In each piece you find music history, the roots of black music such as Jazz, Soul, Funk, Groove and Hip-Hop, and a lot of Portuguese culture represented by renowned musicians that are translated to the collective’s language. The ability to transform their influences in to a unique and new sound is their challenge…. You find in their sound borders that are defined by the past, present and a near future. A sound that makes you stamp your foot or clap your hands, a sound that you can..t stay different to….
It makes you reminisce and try to recognize that groove or beat or sample but it turns out to be a fresh new sound in your face!!!!! Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply..
