Click on the link here for Audio Player: Fernanda Takai – Intro Luz Negra
Portuguese-Japanese singer Fernanda Takai is probably best known to most World Music collectors as the leader singer of the popular Brazilian Alternative band Pato Fu.
In 2007 Takai released her first solo album and scored heavily with audience and critics.
Tonights track, Intro/Luz Negra is off her 2010 live album. As a departure from her Alternative and Experimental roots, this track takes on a 60’s feel. But it also gives some idea of what a remarkable singer Fernanda Takai is.
And I wonder why they don’t play her stuff here in the States . . . . . .
