TAXIDERMIA - Vera Cruz Island [independent / 17 May 2024]

Jadsa is a singer, songwriter, guitarist and music producer from Salvador, Bahia, in Brazil. Her debut album, Olho de Vidro, came out in 2021 on Balaclava Records, and features Ana Frango Elétrico, Kiko Dinucci, Luiza Lian and more.

João Milet Meirelles
is a composer, music producer, live electronics performer and photographer, also from Bahia, and a member of BaianaSystem.

Together they are the duo TAXIDERMIA, that, after two EPs and a single, independently releases their debut album: Vera Cruz Island. Experimenting electronic sounds with traditional Brazilian music, the album features the likes of Bruno Berle, Tori and Iara Rennó.

The duo sent us a few words about the album:

jadsa: “The album brings the movement of the seas, this cyclic idea, repeated. It's our great technology, the repetition. And TAXIDERMIA uses a lot of this artifice, of this human art."

João Milet Meirelles: “I think it's beautiful how the construction of this album is based on allowing yourself. There's a liberty to go to many different paths, and at the same time there is a construction, a conduction e ao mesmo tempo tem uma construção, uma condução. It's like going through a story.”
