Album Notes
The making of “Janaina” was first conceived the Christmas of 2009, after returning to Austin from our fall 2009 mini tour in Wisconsin and Nashville. The “ancestral drum” rhythm guitar piece, inspired by our good friend and musician, Luiz Coutinho (a percussionist and drummer born and raised in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil), is the key that opened the doors to glimpses of Brazil from America.

The song is about a father's longing to visit the homeland and family of his youth, and the heartstrings of his cherished daughter, Janaina, in the United States who bids him to stay for fear he may not return. Speaking his heartfelt desires to his daughter, his soul begins to feel the ancestral drums of his roots, and soon his thoughts take him to Brazil. He dreams of the kaleidoscope of color, dance, song and rhythms of The Carnival. Then he awakens, explaining to his daughter that he must pack to see his Papa again, but not to worry, he will return because God knows his life is with her in the USA.

Musicians for "Janaina" include Victoria Hammill (Lead Vocals, Lead Violin), Edward T Hammill (Guitar - Intro), Tim Dolbear (Guitar – Jam), Chris Castaneda (Guitar – Outro), Luiz Coutinho (Drums and Percussion), Kristopher Lee Wade (Bass, Background Vocals), and Kelly Glover (Background Vocals).

Music and lyrics composed and co-written by Edward T. Hammill and Victoria Hammill.

Recorded, produced, and mastered by Tim Dolbear, Eclectica Studios, Austin, Texas, a certified iTunes mastering engineer.
