“Roots” is the second album of the Brazilian singer Nilza Costa, released in
October 2016, by the FonoFabrique label. The ten songs of the album narrate with
melancholy, religiousness and poetry – but also with a strong dose of hope – the meaning
of life of men and women torn from their homeland. Throughout the entire album the
Africanness of the singer’s origins shines clearly, and it is artfully blended with some
AfroJazz arrangements and with the Yoruba language, that characterizes its ancestry, its
spirituality and its driving and pervasive force.
The album was produced by Studio SoundLab, a cultural organization in Bologna, and by
the band who accompanies the artist in her concerts: the drummer Roberto Rossi, who
also worked at the arrangements, Federico Codicé and Alberto Irrera.
