2013 release. 4 Elementos, or "Four Elements", is a gem that comes as a follow up to Naná Vasconcelos's incredible Sinfonia & Batuques, winner of a Latin Grammy in 2011. This new offering breaks many boundaries and reveals Brazil's most revered percussionist in his best form yet. Naná Vasconcelos creates and shapes sounds and ideas in his original compositions, with inventive and provocative results. On 4 Elementos the listener is invited to join Vasconcelos on a deep and emotional musical journey. The album is released and sponsored by the Government of Pernambuco, through Funcultura, with the executive production of Isa Melo from Coco Produções in partnership with Morenana Produções Artísticas and Far Out Recordings. Inspired by the four elements of nature, the percussion legend Naná Vasconcelos has created a beautiful and hypnotic record. Flowing from the stunning lyricism of "Légua Tirana", a classic by the Brazilian legend Luiz Gonzaga, to "Coco Lunar", where Vasconcelos visualizes a party in the cosmos, showcasing Brazilian rhythm in all its color and vibrancy. In "Berimbando", Naná goes back to his beloved berimbau and pays a beautiful homage to the percussionist Airto Moreira. Nana Vasconcelos has previously played with artist such as Pat Metheny, Milton Nascimento, Joyce, Ron Carter, Don Cherry, Melvin Gibbs, Jack DeJohnette and many more.
