Other Music is very excited to welcome BOOGARINS to the label! FERNANDO ALMEIDA and BENKE FERRAZ met in high school in the central Brazilian city of Goiania, far from the thriving cultural metropolises of Sao Paulo and Rio, yet nevertheless in the shadow of the icons of their homeland's great musical heritage-not bossa nova and samba, but psychedelic pop. Still in their late teens, the music they make together, recorded on borrowed gear and with self-taught technology in their parents' basements, shares the spirit and soul of Tropicalismo, but has blossomed in the light of the current international DIY underground. Almeida is the poet and singer, Ferraz is the multi-instrumentalist and gear-head, and together, as Boogarins, they write songs that reach beyond their years and any restrictions of geography or genre: timeless pop unfettered by categorizations. As Plantas Que Curam (translated: Plants That Heal) is a love letter from the green fields of Goiania to all of us.
