The four tracks that make up this solo EP from Brazilian vocalist Dora Morelenbaum are dreamlike, sensuous, and divine. As a member of modern Tropicalia outfit Bala Desejo, Dora is already a beloved scene stealer on the modern Brazilian music scene. This sweeping, stirring set originally landed in 2021, and is now (thank goodness) reissued as a vinyl 12” by the trusty folks at Mr Bongo. Glorious! - Flying Out

Singer-songwriter Dora Morelenbaum is one of the stunning voices at the forefront of Brazil's exciting new musical wave.

Her sublime Vento De Beirada EP takes you on a trip into the sensuous sounds of Dora's world. On first hearing her music, we were reminded of the transformational moment when we first discovered the Brazilian singersongwriter, Joyce. The music is completely new to you, yet instantly familiar, like rediscovering a past love.

Dora is a member of the Brazilian Latin-Grammy-winning superstar quartet Bala Desejo; a trailblazing light opening up Brazilian music to a whole new audience outside of the country. Vento De Beirada showcases a different sound to the riotous, joyful, avant-garde Tropicalia sound of Bala Desejo. This solo set takes a more dream-like, downbeat, MPB stance. It is frmly contemporary, yet you can also trace the lines of infuence back to idols such as Gal Costa and Maria Bethania.

The EP is comprised of four tracks that have already garnered critical acclaim following their digital release. It starts with the tender and gentle Japao, which was inspired by the melodies of the legendary Japanese composer, Ryuichi Sakamoto. Sakamoto once collaborated with Dora's musician parents, Paula and Jaques Morelenbaum, when she was young. Do a Do is drenched in lush, sweeping strings that were arranged by her father himself, and is co-written by Dora and Tom Veloso of the band, Donica. There's further collaboration on the EP, including production from one of the lynchpins and stars of the current Rio scene, Ana Frango Eletrico. Fellow Bala Desejo band member, Lucas Nunes, contributes towards the production, writing, and guitar with Guilherme Lirio also on production, guitar, and bass. Whilst Bala Desejo's Ze Ibarra penned the song Vento De Beirada with Lucas and Victor Vasconcellos.

The four- track EP has been cut to 12" and mastered for vinyl by Joker (Liam McLean). With crystalline beauty and a breezy sense of ease and serenity, sounding classic yet contemporary. This release serves as the perfect introduction to an extraordinary talent. The sublime solo EP from a member of the Latin-Grammy award winning superstar quartet, Bala Desejo. Taking us on a sensuous ride into the world of one Brazil's most exciting new voices.
