Nubn, Ramiro Pinheiro, Mark Aanderud : Os Grilos Review
Ramiro Pinheiro is a guitarist and songwriter from Brazil with a subtle and creative style. Pinheiro used his ears at the beginning to learn how to play before attending the Conservatório Souza Lima in São Paulo. After graduation, he moved to Barcelona (Spain) and became an essential part of the local music scene, working with various jazz and Brazilian musicians. In 2021 Pinheiro released his debut recording as a leader called Sentido. He has performed in major venues and festivals in Spain and Europe, and have recorded, played and worked with musicians such as Horacio Fumero, Rafael Barata, Rita Payés, Pablo Selnik, Gabriel Amargant, Ana Rossi, Albert Bover, Hugo Arán, Jeffe Otto, Felix Rossy, Pablo Giménez, Rodrigo Balduino, Jurandir Santana, Amoy Ribas, Martin Laportilla, Jaume Vilaseca, Rodrigo Bezerra, Ramón Ángel Rey, among others. His music is a blend of Latin and Brazilian jazz. He is now releasing his latest single called “Os Grilos.”
“Os Grilos (Crickets Sing for Anamaria)” is a creative arrangement of the song written by Brazilian musician Marcos Valle with his brother Paulo Sérgio Valletune, made famous by Astrud Gilberto. For this selection, Pinheiro has teamed up with NUBN, a Brazilian electronic duo based in Barcelona formed by electronic producer and saxophone player Júlio Marks and singer Marina Ribeiro. The song unfolds with Ribeiro’s soft vocals with synths and beats of contemporary electronica that meets Latin rhythms as Pinheiro’s guitar provides solid rhythmic support. The song is a nice blend of modern sounds within the Brazilian music style.
NUBN and Pinheiro have a fun selection with “Os Grilos.” The song is an easy-going arrangement of the Brazilian standard with many rewarding moments that blend Brazilian music with contemporary electronic beats to deliver tropical freshness.
