Orlando is a musician from Campina Grande, a country town in the state of Paraíba, Brazil. He has been involved with activities related to popular music since 1995 when he began his career as an upright bassist.
In his new album, Flying With Dry Leaves, Orlando, in partnership with MakinaGuru (his notebook), takes a trip through the electric and upright bass and its multitude of sounds. Through poetic, free, open, and improvised expressions he seeks to take new paths to express his hope for clearer and freer days. There are four tracks that explore electronic textures and the sounds of daily life in times of seemingly eternal quarantine. Flying With Dry Leaves pays homage to those who are gone and the endless ways that life moves on, always moving forward. Orlando’s music is concerned with cultivating the beauty that exists in continuing to imagine days in which a better world is possible.
