Song Production Information
Brazilian Fire starts off with light, with a kind of wavy chant and groovy guitars, and just keeps growing, like a Fire.
It combines the traditional elements of live Latin rhythms with modern dance beats, and moves from an upbeat syncopated piano part into a harder house style moog sequence that gives the track its final punch.
When I was younger I practiced Capoeira, a traditional Brazilian martial art that is very dance-like and elegant.
It is totally non-agressive, but very fast. Capoeira performances include music: 20 people standing in a circle, playing instruments, chanting, 2 dance-fighters at the center, and the speed and intensity keeps growing, like a Fire.
That image is the idea behind Brazilian Fire.
Video Production Information
If you look far up in the sky, can you see the floating whale? The dancing rays? The flying squid?
From the soaring white tower in the sky blue as the sea, we can catch a glimpse of the resort life of these characters...
Empty your head, let the rhythms of this light Latin tune develop in your mind, and dive into a refreshingly strange and weird world.
I recommend this song to anyone who especially feels stressed out!
