CAROLINA BRANDES’ O.M.P.
“FLOWERS OF THE DEEPER SOIL” U.S. CD RELEASE
Carolina Brandes is born in Germany and grows up and gravitates around the artistic environments of Rome, Berlin, NYC and Boston, where she graduates in Jazz Composition.
Author of lyrics, music and arrangements she has been defined a “musical architect”. Her voice is soulful, warm and sinuous but also dramatic and ironically irreverent.
The music of her project O.M.P. (Original Musical Paint) is Contemporary Electric Jazz, with captivating grooves and intriguing melodies, enhanced by the charisma and personality of Carolina.
It is “fusion” to be intended though in the most authentic and radical sense of the term, namely as an artistic synthesis of a polyglot creativity that incorporates naturally the concept of contamination, blending Jazz, Funk, Gospel, Flamenco, Spoken Poetry, Scat.
The cultural and musical cosmopolitism of the leader is also evident in the lyrics: linguistic collages in English, German, Italian, French and Spanish, gifted with passional strength of commitment.
Finally, reutilizing past excursions in the realm of theater and dance, Carolina surpasses the traditional concert format to embrace the one of a show that delivers words and music in a colored and playful fashion.
