The third album of the singer Rosa Morena Russa (middle-class Kateryna Ostrovska) carries once again a fantasy name: “Caprixaba”, but this time it is only about sound and phonetics. The approximate translation of the word hybrids from “capixaba”, “capricho ” and”????”is “a tried toad from Espirito Santo,” and belongs to the world of the asdoziativen mythical creatures.
Regarding her Album, The singer States: “I longed for a liberation of context and sense. In my second Album I had told many stories and very personal things and so I wanted to take a text break. It was a challenge to work without language, exclusively with musical means and to see how much Emotion I can transmit with it. Moreover, the attachment to a language always brings the attachment to a cultural context. Sometimes I felt that my personal story and the explanations of why I sing in five languages were quite distracting from the music. So I turned to the universal language, which I encountered a lot in Brazilian as well as in Yiddish music and Jazz: to vocalise”.
The Album was mostly recorded live and in one piece and produced by” Nheengatu Criações Sonoras ” in São Paulo. It is a Pool of enthusiastic Jazz and world musicians, created around the composer, producer and multi – instrumentalist Marcos Alma. He also wrote the last track on the Album, which got a Russian Text during the recordings, now it is called “V Belosnezhnoy Tishine” – “in the Snow-White silence”.
Also the second Song of the album has a Text, even one in German. “I Love…”is an expressive declaration of love for life, while the experimental song “Vivo Esquecendo” (“I live forgetting” ) praises the soothing renunciation of the past. The remaining very Brazilian-sounding instrumental pieces have a clear Choro and jazz influence, especially beautiful sounds the contemplative “Todos Os Vultos do Rio” (“all shapes of the river”).
