Transcending Soundscapes with Universo

Are you ready to be transported on the ultimate adventure in musicology ?  Because there is a seat here with your name on it. Strap on in. Put on your headphones. Press Play. And just let go and drop into a little place I like to call right now.

Here’s what I love about this band.

Actually before I heard a thing, I saw the name of the first track Super Nova and I couldn’t help but let an inner smile sweep over me. The,n when I actually pressed play, I froze in total awe.  It took me 48 seconds to drop into wonder-lust, and know that this was going to be something special.

OK, so my Portuguese isn’t my strong suite, but just like Español, I’ve always felt such a connection to it. I don’t know about you, but it’s like my heart understands it anyways. That’s what’s special about music – it just transcends.

It fuses the memoirs of days gone past, dreams of the future into the universal state of nowness. It’s a funny little thing actually come to think of it. Experiencing both this very real and grounded moment and the paradigms of something that lives in the corners of our mind.  I’ve never really dropped into a sound this way before. It’s truly an experience!

“Music has the power to bring people together, to connect people to each other, either by body, by thoughts or by soul. There are days when music is your only friend, your only company. It gives soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination, and life to everything.

Music can name the unnameable and communicate the unknowable, can express what simple words cannot. Music is the universal language of mankind. Music can change the world because it can change people.” 

                                                                            Leo Bor,  Founder and Producer of the band.

This isn’t an album. It’s a movement. It’s has a spirit blurred between the intricate lines of country, pop rock, metal, lullabies and R&B sounds. (to name a few). It’s a melodic journey that hold and drops and winds you up and gently rocks you into the ether of the galaxy … no the universe.

It started with just one. UNO. Leo Bor being a supernova and doing it all himself. Now it’s a tribe , a band of souls driven by the music.

I found this quote and it’s like Michel meant it just for them.

The beautiful souls are they that are universal, open, and ready for all things.
Michel de Montaigne

This is a band that can’t be boxed or defined. They’re just open to some other source of inspiration. That’s what makes them universal … UNIVERSO … and that’s what gives them the edge to make it just about anywhere.

Right now they are focusing on redefining the sounds of Brazil in their own backyards … but who knows … maybe with a lot of love a tour will be born.  So let’s join the movement and take them beyond borders drawn in the sand and embrace a new sound.

Join the 3000+ Facebook fans who know a good thing when they feel it … and / or … follow up this these other links (to trip on the light fantastic)



… and join me on congratulating them on the launch of this indie album!!! Hip Hip Hoorah!!!
