Haven't we all experienced them, the soft minor chords of our inner world? The
power of melancholy, suddenly condensing a blue sky into a grey curtain of
rain, obscuring vision, focusing attention inward?
The eleven songs that are the result of this quest are pleasingly devoid of any reference to what is commonly associated with typical Brazilian music. These aspects were satisfied by XIAME five years ago, when the German-Brazilian trio started building their audience. But the traditional South-American rhythms dominant on XIAME's first CD "XIAME", play a more subdued role on "Canto d'alma". Instead, the musicians unite their contrasting musical characters and personal backgrounds into a harmonic set, telling its predominantly instrumental stories from the perspective of the everyday life they experience together.
