Released on 01 01 2022, Nó Samsara conjures Rodrigo's first ten compositions for Kalamaha.
Built in old-world Rio de Janeiro, once the capital of an empire, by the end of 2015 it was nothing more than a haunted house in the quiet neighborhood of Vila Isabel facing the sound transgression of Rodrigo's first chords to Kalamaha.
In summoning a Stratocaster Giannini Sonic was carving the frequencies of 'Chinese Alarm Clock'; 'Revés Blue' traveled from IO; 'À Tarde' followed with Diego Sanchez collaborating on bass lines; 'Rising in Mars' was rescued from the afternoons in Laranjeiras; 'Night Drive' from the pillar of the will; A pair of Gianninis, a PRS and its red bass, a Fender Jaguar, Rodrigo has been rising 'Nó Samsara' for primordial ages.
Climbing a hill made his voice in the first recordings with Bruno Schulz; a fanfare also for the participation of Mari Milani; 'Raphaella' brought the balance of master Fernando Dias, Bruno Philippsen arrived through the labyrinths of fate; Building and making dreams follow recordings with comrade Caio. 'Shokubutsu no Boshi' swings to flirt with the baião; 'Vegan' gains new contours on Barbara Field's harmonica; 'That Bet' experiences its own journey; finally 'Confortism' a consommé of the sound 'Nó Samsara'.
A production by Rodrigo Kalamaha and Salvador Camino, with thanks to friends Bárbara Field, Fernando Dias, Mari Milani, Caio Maia and CMStudioRJ – responsible for reamps and recordings, Bruno Philippsen, responsible for mixing the record from Passo Fundo, Rio Grande do Sul.
