Menescal (son of bossa nova pioneer Roberto Menescal), DJ Marcelinho DaLua and
record producer/sound engineer Alex Moreira utilize this optimistic nationalism
as the foundation of their latest album, Our Kind Of Bossa (Six Degrees
Records). The upbeat eleven-track record focuses equally on Brazil's other
homegrown concoction: samba and features an amazing cast of guest contributors
like legendary MPB band Os Cariocas, one of the country's most recognizable
vocalists, Maria Rita, Singer Emílio Santiago, São Paulo native Wilson Simoninha
and long time Bossacucanova vocalist Cris Delanno.
