Música de Bolso: A New Music Video Experience with Mallu Magalhães, Marcelo Camelo, Rodrigo Campos, and José González

July 9, 2009

Música de Bolso (translating to Music of Pocket, or something like a “street performer”), describe themselves as an audiovisual project that present live performances by musicians in spaces where they wouldn’t usually play a live show. They offer a fresh music video experience by providing a new intimacy between the viewer and musician—one that typically lacks in fancy music videos. These videos are serious art works. You’ll want to have them playing on your computer all day. For those who liked our posts on Marcelo Camelo and Mallu Magalhães, here are three videos of them—so wonderful you’ll want to step into your screen. Also check out Rodrigo Campos—he’s new to Mi Casa, but we like this video of him and his samba so much, we’ll surely have him back. And for those who are already familiar with José González, here’s a chance to sit next to him at a restaurant as he plays “The Nest.” Find many more videos at their website, and follow them on Twitter, Facebook, and on their Podcast.

I promised to post something on a solo project from one of Los Hermanos, so here it is. Now, I didn’t plan on posting it this soon, but damn, this has been my song for the past 120 days, and I thought I should share it for one of your days.

Guitarist and singer from Los Hermanos, Marcelo Camelo, released “Sou” just last year—an album that’ll make you jump from your seat or enjoy the seat you’re in as you admire the lovely complexities of Camelo’s ballads. Téo e a Gaivota is one of those songs that’ll have you awed at the many levels of emotion that are woven together with the strings of Camelo’s guitar, lyrics derived from a poem, gentle drumming, and xylophone notes that tip-toe in the background. The song gets to a point where the melancholy music gets loud—as if to reconsider its emotion—but Marcelo pulls it back to a state of sadness with an ounce of hope.
