Album Notes
Vocalist April Aloisio and guitarist Fareed Haque have just collaborated and released a CD together on AloisioMusic, "Yoga Bossa Nova." Their mutual love of Bossa Nova has produced seven classics from Brazilian composer Antonio Carlos Jobim, along with Fareed Haque's original "Samba Pra Tom." As a singer and yoga teacher, April wanted to combine her love of Bossa Nova and Yoga, giving Jobim's music a yogic feel and flow, and making it available for yoga classes and beyond. Embracing her vision, production included extending song lengths and adding musical sounds and accents throughout the recording. April and Fareed open the CD with "Dreamer" a meditative, grounding place to start the journey, allowing the listener to just slow down and take the time to relax. Diving into the "Waters Of March," April does her own vocal interpretation with these challenging lyrics as Fareed's guitar sets a contemplative mood. "Favela" features Portuguese lyrics and has more of an instrumental feel, whereas "Wave" starts to bring up the tempo into a more danceable mode, incorporating horns and other instruments and encouraging even more movement. "So Danco Samba" showcases April's dual vocals with Portuguese lyrics, skipping along with the music, and ending with an interpretive scat fade out. Fareed's original "Samba Pra Tom" is featured next with April's vocal lightly adding to the guitar melody, keeping the flow upbeat and engaging. "Someone To Light Up My Life" begins with Fareed's beautiful guitar solo and offers April's heartfelt lyrics to this Jobim classic. As the tempo slows down, we drift off into relaxation as "Yoga Bossa Nova" comes to a close with "Dindi," "Like the song of the wind in the trees." Imagining, breathing and just be-ing.
