Gaby Amarantos no Guardian
Tags: gaby amarantos, guardian
Her music sounds, to our untrained ears anyway, like a mashup of 90s Euro rave, moombahton, cumbia, and the kind of Hispanic electro-pop you hear in discos on holiday when you’re out of your mind on budget cocktails. Like Gloria Estefan with techno knobs on – or rather, Glozzer in a clinch with Technotronic. In Brazil, it has its own genre name – “tecnobrega” – which literally translates as “techno-naff”, and is a modern electronic version of the sort of tacky romantic music that has been big in the north of Brazil since the 70s.
