Hyldon: Brazil's Master of the Warm Chill
Moving towards the afternoon, Sound Travels continued with ever more Brazilliance, and at eleven I played a fave from a personal favorite, Hyldon. His is baby-makin music in the most Brazilian of ways. Even with the continental differences, it's evident that his sound is super 70's, but in a way that somehow exhibits all the era's musical motifs in a way that is neither cheesy or melodramatic. His sound is a lazy day in the throes of plaintive passions. Truly, I haven't the faintest idea what he's singing but the title "Balanço do Violão" translates to 'the swing of my guitar;' and so it does, like a hammock on a lazy seaside summer day.
