Creating uncanny bridges between subverted brazilian folk, jazz and electronic vanguard, this unusual Synths/Drums duo presents a whole new outlook on just how innovative contemporary brazilian music can be. Overlaying pulsations like the northeastern "Boi", or even the well trodden Bossa-nova claves, with deep textural fat synths that remind us of the more experimental moments of Radiohead, the ECO duo claims its seat on the tradition of crossover artists like Hermeto Pascoal and Egberto Gismonti.
