Song of the Day: Caixa Cubo – Dreams

Funk fuelled and global-pointing Brazilian jazz trio Caixa Cubo released their latest single Dreams, from the forthcoming album Agora 

Dreams is the group’s first foray into R’n’B melding the simple and sporadic instrumentation of drums, keys and bass into a Jill Scott-inspired song that could have been born in Brooklyn yet sung by Brazilian singer and Grammy nominated Xênia França and Zé Leônidas, sung in both English and Portuguese. Xênia performed online for hip-to-it website Colors and it’s her latest collaboration with Caixa Cubo, having first met in 2009 for a series of live performances.

Listen to Caixa Cubo new song Dreams, from the band's new album Agora:

Re-wiring the concept of 'fusion' for 2023, Agôra is Brazilian trio Caixa Cubo’s resurgent new record with the title referring to 'now', based upon the intuitive and fluid nature of the trio’s method, and this inspired recording. With shoots to black music culture, from Brazil to Ghana and South Africa, Agôra is sparkling with electric funk and Herbie Hancock eclecticism. It shines not only for its virtuosity but also for its minimalism, it's depth of space, and for the first time, it's ability to figure outside the jazz fold, as the trio from São Paulo decided to bring in singers and add a new aesthetic to their sound. It follows on from their 2020 hit album Angela released on Heavenly Recordings.
