The Norwegian duo Morild follows up their critically acclaimed debut album «Nordic Landscapes» with the new album «Brazilian Soundscapes». It includes 10 compositions from Brazil by composers such as Jobim, Gismonti, and Caymmi. The music brings out the good Brazilian vibes and offers lovely melodies, groovy rhythms, and beautiful harmonies. The two musicians have dug deep, looking beyond the most famous Brazilian treasures (perhaps with the exception of the classic Chega de Saudade), bringing forth some musical gems that are well worth listening to. The listener will be taken on a journey to the homeland of Samba and Bossa Nova.

Dag Einar and Marius have played a lot of Brazilian music together over the past 10 years and this is in many ways a summary of their collaboration. The combination of classical guitar and alto trombone is an unusual one, but Eilertsen and Gundersen have received brilliant feedback for the way they make the instruments sound together. On Brazilian Soundscapes, they have also included Luis Landa-Schreitt on percussion and Karl Erik Horndalsveen on bass on six of the tracks. Adding the additional instruments enriches the music even more and gives the audience a greater variety in their listening experience. Have a fun and enjoyable trip to Brazil.
