Minas takes Brazilian and American roots to create a sound that is fresh and innovative, ballads tinged with melancholic traits of Blues and Choro, to Follk coasting onthe subtle coolness of Bossa Nova pulse, to upbeat Sambas elaborated with instrumental jazz improvisation, scat singing and whimsical whistiling.
With recordings of original music and a collection of over 100 songs, Orlando and Patricia's compositions have been compared to classics by Cole Porter and Antonio Carlos Jobim. Capturing the essence of great songwriting with memorable melodies, inventive harmonies, and poetic lyrics, the music of Minas is engaging and timeless.
