Frederico7’s Pan-American soul music is a result of his diverse background. Born in Brazil, he has lived in Mexico, Argentina, and, finally, settled in right here in Austin. Speaking English, Portuguese and Spanish, the singer-songwriter isn’t short of words or rhythm. Frederico7’s music is a fusion of Afro-Brazilian rhythms, American Funk, Soul, Dub and Psychedelia.
His debut album, Exótico Americano, is out today. The album tackles themes of unity and resilience while sharing the melodies that embody a diverse American continent. Come celebrate the release of Exótico Americano with Frederico7 tonight at the Empire Control Room on East Seventh Street. For now, let’s play something we can bop our heads to. From Frederico7, here is “Nature of Love.”
