Artist: Badi Assad
Title: Hatched

2015 release that puts a graceful Brazilian spin on Pop and EDM chart toppers. The hidden Afro-Brazilian side of some of pop's best-loved tracks comes to light, thanks to Brazil's nimble, virtuosic guitarist and vocalist Badi Assad. Ranked by Rolling Stone as one of the world's top female guitarists, Assad is from musical royalty (Brazil's acclaimed Assad family). She's incubated a new Brazilophilic way to listen to global hits on Hatched, rendering them with all the gravity and grace the seasoned, expansive artist is known for. "These songs surprised me, with their depth, and with the depth of engagement they inspired in young listeners," Assad recounts. "There is so much shallow music, it seems sometimes, and life has been made so shallow everywhere. The younger people are encouraged to live on the surface, and no one has time to go any deeper. Yet if our souls are shallow, where will we be? Some of these songs deal with this very question, and it made me see them in a whole new light." Quicksilver guitar work and vocal percussion, sweet and stirring singing are Badi's trademarks, and they crack open the unexpectedly lyrical quality and deep sentiments of the popular songs Assad chose to explore, arrange, and make her own.
