Brazilian artist Gabriel da Rosa plays traditional-inspired Brazilian bossa nova and samba with a contemporary edge on his debut album, É o que a casa oferece.
Although Gabriel now resides in Los Angeles, his Brazilian heritage and roots are pivotal to his musicianship, thanks to his upbringing in rural Brazil, where he was inspired to make music by his poet mother and his radio DJ dad, who introduced him to the music of artists like Joao Gilberto.
For Gabriel da Rosa, the appeal of bossa nova is its emotional as well as musical depth. He says, “When you listen to it, you feel blissful – it evokes happy memories. That’s what I’m trying to do on the album.”
