Brizzi do Brasil, Brazilian popular music meets avant garde and electronica

San Francisco, USA – As part of its Secret World series, Amiata Records has
released an album by Italian musician Aldo Brizzi. Brizzi do Brasil is a
unique project that brings together Italian classical composer Aldo Brizzi and
some of the biggest names in the Portuguese-speaking musical world. Some of the
biggest names in Brazilian and Portuguese music, stars like Caetano Veloso and
Madre Deus vocalist Teresa Salgueiro, Gilberto Gil, Carlinhos Brown, Virginia
Rodrigues and Tom Ze, collaborate in an intriguing, modern fusion which
skillfully blends Brazilian popular music with world, avant garde and
electronica. Aldo Brizzi, in addition to his own compositions and releases, has conducted
the strings of the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra and numerous other symphonies
and orchestras worldwide and has worked with Ennio Morricone and John Cage. He
has chosen Salvador de Bahia in Brazil as his second home where he is a well
respected author and composer.

The track “Misterio de Afrodite” has been also selected for the official
UNICEF compilation promoted by the Audrey Hepburn children’s Fund and due to be
released this year to promote and raise funds for the international “All
children in School” campaign.
