Rainha dos Raios (Queen of the Rays). There couldn`t be another title of this contemporary masterpiece that confirms Alice Caymmi as big name in modern Brazilian music. First, because of the Queen’s electrifying lightning discharge of creativity in the pop universe. Second, because the genesis of this second album Alice – exponent of the third generation of the iconic family Caymmi – begins in the encounter with the artist Strausz, carioca musician connected to the world of electronic beats. With Strausz, Alice presented in June 2013 her particular version of “Iansã”, partnership of Caetano Veloso and Gilberto Gil launched in 1972 in the voice of Maria Bethania. It was the turning point for her carreer
Since then, there wasn`t bad weather for her. Joia Moderna`s A&R, DJ Zé Pedro welcomed Alice Caymmi in his label when Iansã fell hard on his iPod and since then had joined the wave the singer who is granddaughter of master Dorival Caymmi. That’s why Queen of rays – hard done by Alice Caymmi with Strausz in Brazil and mastered in Germany – opens pathways in brazilian market
