About "Blues De Yansa"
Nilza Costa is a Brazilian singer and songwriter born in Salvador, Bahia, with and her heart beats to African ancestral rhythms. In her singing traditional forms of musical Brazilian culture, such as Candomblè, Capoeira, Samba, Maculè and Cantigas de Roda, are trasfigured filtered in a striking and original way.
Nilza is the spokeswoman of the revolution of her people, who also thanks to their music and spirituality, have found their way of emancipation. Her personal and artistic life enriched by many live exhibitions and famous collaborations ( among others Roy Paci ). Her début album, Revolution, Rivoluzione, Revoluçào, a fascinating trip through the best World Music and it mingles Afro jazz with Samba, Blues and hypnotic voodoo atmospheres. Her deep and dark voice guides you through eleven tracks. The opening Obanixà is a prayer-invocation to one of the divinities of Afro-Brasilian syncretic cults. The CD goes on as a journey that from mythical calls of remote lands to manifesto-songs such as Soberania Popular, which is a vibrant social and political deninciation, featuring rousing guitars in Latin-gipsy key. Tracks such as Blues de Yansa , Pedra do Pedro and the final track Lettera della Terra are transition into more mysterious and dreamy atmospheres.
This album is a magic journey suspended between cultures and languages, in which lyrics in Portuguese, English, Italian and Yoruba - an ancient idiom brought to South America by African slaves - are highlighted thanks to excellent instrumentalists' contribution.


The album, produced in 2014 at Studio SoundLab in Bologna, Italy, features Peppe Siracusa and Alberto Irrera's arrangements, Giancarlo Bianchetti on the guitar, Carlo Atti on the saxophone and Roberto Rossi on the drums, together with many other leading figures of Italian music.
