As Grammy Award-winning musician Ruriá Duprat puts it: “Urbem’s sound is so eclectic that a verbal description is virtually impossible. You have to listen to it.” Urbem is a quartet whose feet are on Brazilian soil but whose arms are around the world. Their unusual formation, with the distinctive voice of Bianca Bacha, who also plays ukulele, the amazing drummer Sandro Moreno, the precise Gabriel Basso on bass and the talented guitarist Gabriel de Andrade, makes them a truly unique jazz group. Creating the songs on this album involved two years of deep immersion in a living room, where the band would meet, sharing ideas, rhythms, feelings. As a band they not only record together, but spend a lot of time together, becoming like a family, exchanging ideas and inspiration. This unity allows Urbem to play with wonderful clarity.
