Capturing Brazilian Sounds with @brasilmostratuacapa

To see more of Layana and Antônio’s vinyl recreations, follow @brasilmostratuacapa on Instagram. For more Brazil stories, check out @instagrambrasil.

(This interview was conducted in Portuguese.)

Layana Leonardo (@layleonardo) and Antônio Adriano (@antonyadriano) originally set out to recreate Brazilian vinyl records through portrait photography. “But then, we realized we could do something more relevant, something where other people might even participate,” says Antônio. Layana’s passion for music and Antônio’s love for photography inspired them to create @brasilmostratucapa, a project where they use Brazilian album covers as faces and also feature submissions from the #sleeveface hashtag. Their creative process is very collaborative: “To portray the cover, we try to find the perfect clothing and venue to take the photographs.” From the beginning, paying homage to Brazilian sounds and visuals was very important. “When we started out, the #sleeveface hashtag was already really popular, but there were almost no photos of Brazilian records,” says Layana, who describes herself as totally addicted to Brazilian music, from the old to the new. “I have a lot of vinyl records, and most of them are Brazilian. It’s very hard to resist nice vinyl records and their beautiful album covers. It really is an addiction!”

— Herkesin Dilinde Aynı Şarkı Var—

Caz tarihinde yorumlanan parça hangisidir?” sorusunun muhtemel yanıtlarından birisidir, İpanemalı Kız. Bir iddiaya göre 3.600 yorumla parça pinçik edilen bu eserin bestesi Antonio Carlos Jobim'e, Portekizce sözleri de Vinicius de Moraes'e aittir. 

Talihin garip ama tanıdık cilvesi sonucu, ‘Garota de Ipanema'nın bu ticari başarıya ulaşmasının altında,1964 yılında Stan Getz, João Gilberto, Antonio Carlos Jobim ve Astrud Gilberto tarafından icra edilmesi yatıyordu.

Amerikalı tenor saksofoncu Getz sayesinde ulaşılan bu popülarite, sadece bu şarkıyla sınırlı kalmadı. João Gilberto ve Antonio Carlos Jobim'in kurucusu kabul edildikleri bu 'yeni müzik’, 'Getz/Gilberto'nun 1965 yılında En İyi Caz Albümü dalında Grammy ödülü kazanmasıyla ilgiyi üzerine çekti. Ipanemalı altın saçlı kız, Brezilya doğumlu bu yumuşak ve sakin dokunuşlu müzik türünü tüm dünyaya duyurdu. 

Kaçınılmaz olarak, popüler olan her akım gibi, bossa nova'nın bir ucu daha az uğranılan köşelerde kalırken; diğer ucu 'asansör müziği’ / 'yemek müziği’ olmaya kadar uzandı. 

Halbuki 'Garota de Ipanema'nın Pery Ribeiro yorumu, Getz/Gilberto albümüyle bossa nova tüm dünyada patlamadan önce Brezilya'da zaten 'hit’ olmuştu.
