Saindo da Lagoa
Jacaré is the new sound of Berlin’s Brazilian music scene. Founded in 2019 by Helena Fontaine, Félix Huet and Gonçalo Mortagua, the quartet of musicians already performed in Berlin’s iconic venues such as the Festsaal Kreuzberg, the Gretchen, and the underground club of Das Hotel Bar. Their show is a blend of nostalgic samba traditions, triple vocal harmonies, deep tenor saxophone lines and brazilian percussions. In 2020 the Jacarés recorded their first EP “Saindo da Lagoa” with sound engineers Tim Tabellion and Florent Chaintiou which will be released on the 30.04.2021 under the label of Sungroove Record.
The EP “Saindo da Lagoa” takes you on a journey along the coast of Brazil and portrays some emblematic rythms such as the Côco, the Ciranda, and above all, the Samba. The compositions are influenced by the roots of the gender, the first “sambistas” who blended poetry, rhythm, spontaneity, and the beauty of vocal harmonies in order to create timeless songs that all will remember and sing along.
