“Meu Brasil”; an acoustic adventure in the Brazilian, earthbound music tradition. This record is recorded with both Swedish and Brazilian musicians and reflects a global unity coming from the mutual passion for the Brazilian music treasure vaults. The material is mostly sung in Portuguese and is collected from compositors from different eras such as Baden Powel, Nelson Cavaquinho and Jorge Ben. The distance between Sweden and Brazil decreases when the album also contains new written Bossa Nova with Swedish lyrics written by Miriam and when she brings the Swedish music tradition with her, interpreting one a poem by Swedish poet Nils Ferlin’s in Portuguese.
