about

The first thing that strikes you when hearing “Nosso” is its feeling of intimacy and warmth. The title, which means “Ours” in Portuguese, is apt since he sees the record as the result of letting a wild variety of people into his world. João notes that “I didn’t know most of the collaborators before meeting up with them in a studio somewhere in the world, so most of these songs are coming from a very immediate and honest sense of collaboration where you spend an afternoon with someone learning about each other at the same time as you’re making music. It’s a shared experience, a moment where two or more people came up with ideas together, that they probably wouldn’t have had if they were in their comfort zone.” These meetings were turned into songs at home in Lisbon once the main ideas were created collaboratively elsewhere.


“On this album, like in everything else I did so far, the focus on the instrumental side of things was experimenting with rhythmic patterns and genres from the Portuguese-speaking universe while applying them to songs created with other artists from completely different backgrounds and places.” There’s something in this process that has left the album sounding super fresh as this is a sound without borders that pulls you in. It’s music everyone can be a part of, where even the most rugged up-tempo cut sounds welcoming. It’s an overwhelmingly positive and joyous experience to immerse yourself in “Nosso.” It’s no wonder that the central motif of the album artwork shows a less common view of Lisbon, one where instead of looking at the historic city centre we face the suburbs, where these musical and cultural experiments have been and still are occurring, undeniably shaping the musical and cultural landscape of Lisbon in the process.


As much a soul record as it is a record infused with the beats of the Portuguese-speaking world, “Nosso” is a reflection of Branko’s ongoing musical explorations and his vision of Lisbon as a privileged cultural hub for the Portuguese-speaking world and beyond. Branko fuses local rhythms from kizomba to baile funk and afrohouse through European electronic genres with a clear accessible pop sensibility and the aim of creating a unified sound that puts all these individual musical expressions in perspective as part of a greater whole.


For João, this is the logical next step in his musical evolution. To the many Buraka Som Sistema fans he would say that he’s making music using the same principles but with a greater reflection of his personal taste and in collaboration with a wide range of “global agitators and artists to create songs and fusions that might point out new musical directions.” His trips from São Paulo to Lima to Cidade da Praia (Cabo Verde) and beyond have given him a new joy and a new hope.  This is one of the reasons you can hear so many languages on this album. It’s reaching across those hard borders and showing us through action that we all have more in common with each other than we may think. The end result of Branko’s experiments is a brilliantly crafted record that is like a full deep breath of fresh air, a belief in optimism in the world, optimism about difference, optimism about collaboration, joy in unity. Take down the borders in your mind and enter the sound of Lisbon 2019.

Track Name: Over There (feat. Miles From Kinshasa)
I say it’s alright
But these forest fires burn only I can tame me
That’s the truth
Paraphernalia
But the only one who made it worth the trip is
None other than you

And there’s nothing over there
Had the loudest pack in the room
Among these numbers
I still feel nothing

And there’s nothing over here
Like they told me when i went home
Still among these numbers
I still feel nothing

Track Name: Sempre (feat. Mallu Magalhães)
Hoje eu quero ver o mar
Venha me buscar
Na areia que queima nossos pés juntos

Se quando a gente quer
E a gente tem
É só dizer que sim
Dessas coisas lindas que só precisa cuidar bem

Eu vou me refazer por ti
Eu vou dizer que sim por nós
Nas contas que o amor não faz
Eu deixo tudo para depois

Mas fico com você, sempre
Com você, sempre
Com você, sempre
Com você, sempre

Vem comigo
Vem comigo, sempre (x2)

Se quando a gente quer
E a gente tem
É só dizer que sim
Dessas coisas lindas que só precisa cuidar bem

Eu vou me refazer por ti
Eu vou dizer que sim por nós
Nas contas que o amor não faz
Eu deixo tudo para depois

Mas fico com você, sempre
Com você, sempre
Com você, sempre
Com você, sempre

Vem comigo
Vem comigo, sempre (x2)
Track Name: Amours d'Été (feat. Pierre Kwenders)
Viens par-là, touche-moi là
Mais non, arrête pas
Si si, je l’aime comme ça
Touche-moi, aime-moi
Adore-moi, embrasse-moi
Baby, je l’aime comme ça
 
Dis-moi que tu m’aimes
Prends-moi dans tes bras
Vas-y, enlaçe-moi
Vas-y, t’arrête-pas
 
Viens par-là, touche-moi là
Mais non, arrête pas
Si si, je l’aime comme ça
Touche-moi, aime-moi
Adore-moi, embrasse-moi
Baby, je l’aime comme ça
 
Ma chérie m’a dit
Alobi na ngai
Désir eza danger
Bolingo yango ata na boyi
Akolemba te, akotika te
Akobakisa, akopesa nioso
Elle m’a dit méfie-toi
Des amours d’été
Y’a rien de pire qu’un…
Un amour d’été
Sache que dans le désir
Ne se cache rien d’autre que le danger
 
Viens par-là, touche-moi là
Mais non, arrête pas
Si si, je l’aime comme ça
Touche-moi, aime-moi
Adore-moi, embrasse-moi
Baby, je l’aime comme ça (x2)
Track Name: Tudo Certo (feat. Dino d'Santiago)
Deixa-me respirar
Seguir em frente e sentir
Onde posso encontrar
Aquilo que tanto procuro

Já que um novo dia vai nascer
Chega de olhar para trás
Vou contar até 10
Continuar

Quero sangue novo
Pra fazer-me à vida
Num caminho nobu
Vou fazer-me à vida, yeah (x2)

Agarrar um novo dia
Controlar o meu jogo
Num passo de cada vez
Sem o talvez
Que só me bloqueia

Quero sangue novo
Pra fazer-me à vida
Num caminho nobu
Vou fazer-me à vida, yeah (x2)

Eh pa bu dexan bai
Dexan bai pra um novo dia
Um novo dia

Eh pa bu dexan bai
Dexan bai pra um novo dia
Um novo dia vai nascer

Quero sangue novo
Pra fazer-me à vida
Num caminho nobu
Vou fazer-me à vida, yeah (x2)

Vai dar tudo certo (x8)

Eh pa bu dexan bai
Dexan bai pra um novo dia
Um novo dia

Eh pa bu dexan bai
Dexan bai pra um novo dia
Um novo dia vai nascer
