about

Grandeza is an album about the natural gesture of love and the softness of the human body. It’s also about my love for Brazilian music and its many shapes and colors. I like to think that it exists somewhere among the rituals that celebrate life. It’s a reminder that amongst all the pain, music comes to reaffirm the beauty in living.

about

Sessa New York, New York

Sessa's songs are sung in Portuguese, with visceral, sensual lyrics in the vain of Caetano Veloso, and the melodic flourishes of Jobim. However, the music gets a deliberate minimalist treatment rarely found in contemporary Brazilian music, more reminiscent of the bareness of Leonard Cohen, with touches of tropicalia and free jazz. ... more

Track Name: Flor do Real
saber pela pele é a minha crença
o acaso é a flor do real
o acaso é a flor do real

saber pela garganta
de quem canta bem
é bom
foda é o prazer do som

deixa a minha boca morar na sua boca
deixa o meu sexo morar no seu
deixa a minha mão morar nas suas pernas
E o meu quadril anexo ao seu

euforia
euforia
eu faria
tudo por você

Viver pela pele é a minha crença
o acaso é a flor do real
o acaso é a flor do real

Viver nas entranhas de quem nos assanha
é bom
foda é o prazer do som

deixa a minha boca morar na sua boca
deixa o meu sexo morar no seu
deixa a minha mão morar nas suas pernas
E o meu quadril anexo ao seu

euforia
euforia
eu faria
tudo por você



Flor do Real (Flower of Reality)

To know through the skin is my creed
Chance is the flower of reality
Chance is the flower of realty

To know through the throat
Of those who sing good
It’s good
Fucking is the pleasure of sound

Let my mouth live in your mouth
Let my sex live in yours
Let my hand live in your legs
And my hips attached to yours

Euphoria, euphoria
I’d do anything for you

To know through the skin is my creed
Chance is the flower of reality
Chance is the flower of reality

To live in the guts of those who make us horny
It’s good
It’s good
Fucking is the pleasure of sound

Let my mouth live in your mouth
Let my sex live in yours
Let my hand live in your legs
And my hips attached to yours

Euphoria, euphoria
I’d do anything for you
Track Name: Dez Total (Filhos de Gandhy)
que bate na carne é o ritmo bom
enterra a navalha no branco do som
azul tão profundo amor
que me despertou domingo

os filhos de gandhy mostram como é
batendo alinhado o som do afoxé
que me fez apaixonar
pelo agogô zunindo

dez total
os filhos de gandhy são dez total
dez total os filhos de gandhy são dez total



Dez Total, Filhos de Gandhy (Perfect Ten, Sons of Gandhy)

What hits the flesh is good rhythm
Stick in the knife in the sound of white
Blue of deepest love
That in me awoke on sunday

The sons of gandhy show how it is
Hitting tight the afoxe sound
That made me fall in love
With the buzzing agogo

Perfect ten
The sons of gandhy are a perfect ten
Perfect ten
Profound atonal mystery
Perfect ten
The sons of gandhy are a perfect ten
