Janelas Imprevisíveis is the first studio album from 22-year old singer and pianist Flavia K
Janelas Imprevisíveis is the first studio album from 22-year old singer and pianist Flavia K, She has already been a performing artist for over 10 years and has worked with some of the giants of Brazilian music, including Ed Motta, Simoninha, Seu Jorge and Ivan Lins.
The pianist, singer and songwriter began to play her first piano notes at the age of four. She studied classical piano and jazz piano at the São Caetano do Sul Arts Foundation and studied singing with teachers Tania Lasse and Diana Goulart. Her music brings influences from the worlds of jazz, soul, funk, bossa nova and R&B, and she has shared the stage with great artists such as Ed Motta, Wilson Simoninha, Max de Castro, Jair Oliveira, Luciana Mello, Claudya, Patricia Marx, Jimmy Bo Horne, among others. The Janelas Imprevisíveis album is the result of many years dedicated to bridging the gap between jazz and the diversity of contemporary music. Flavia comfortably embraces the contrast between the bucolic and the urban, as on the tracks Canção do Sol and Atelier do Silêncio, with appearances by one of the founders of bossa nova, Roberto Menescal and rap artist Slim Rimografia, respectively.
Part of Flavia’s musical refinement lies in her beautiful voice, remarkable pitch and natural timbre, and how she exploits this ability to compose the vocal harmonies that give consistency to the songs. All the vocals on the album are original and untouched!
The details of the arrangements are also strongly present through the large cast of musicians invited to work alongside her. Flavia and producer Julio Mossil developed a rich musical architecture with flugel horn, percussion, keyboards, guitar, pianos and electronics. The jazz, soul and blues building blocks gain more body with bass and drum rhythms, creating a stylish dynamic that spans the entire album. The lyrics, co-written with her mother, Anete K, have a surrealistic and absurd touch, a descriptive, pertinent 21st century urban poetry that is divided into all the ups and downs of real life.
