Lucas Santtana is a breath of fresh air from what I’ve been listening to lately. His music fits perfectly with the fact that it’s finally summer in Seattle. He experiments with many different styles in each song, mixing some Brazilian rhythms and guitar, with hip-hop, folk and electronic. The gorgeous flow of Brazilian Portuguese and his smooth voice don’t hurt either. His latest album, Sem Nostalgia, came out in 2009 in Brazil, but should be released here in August. Wish I had found out about him in earlier.
You can download his single “Cira Regina y Nana” for free below and make sure to watch the video for “Super Violão Mashup,” as well.
