Djavan, Vesúvio Review
Connect with Djavan: Facebook |
Vocalist, guitarist and songwriter Djavan used to go with his mother, Virginia, to the river bank where she did laundry with other laundresses from Maceió. That is when he noticed how beautiful his mother and her friends sang, and how she was able to coordinate their voices and sing amazing solos. At home, his ever-so-musical mother taught him his first radio songs. It was Djavan’s mother who first noticed how talented he was and encouraged him to pursue the dream of becoming a “radio singer.” Djavan was blessed with a musical ear and voice, but also had just as much talent with a ball on his feet. Djavan listened to his mother’s intuition and focused on becoming one of the world’s greatest singers and song writers. Djavan’s unique music style allowed him to conquer Rio de Janeiro, Brazil and the Brazilian music. After that came the world, the stages, the studios and partners in the United States, Europa, Africa. Sony music is now releasing Djavan’s album, Vesúvio. Containing thirteen tracks that focus on the vast world music idiom it blends: South American folk, R&B, samba, pop, jazz and Latin into a beautiful tapestry of sounds, all presented with Djavan’s outstanding singing.

The songwriting is excellent. The fills are varied, and the band is outstanding. Djavan’s guitar playing is very enjoyable. The jazz influence in these songs is undeniable.
