Maxado & Alex Figueira: Quando Será

New tracks from the Music With Soul camp, Alex Figueira’s Amsterdam-based label and store.

Brazil rocksteady artist Maxado hooks up with Alex for a tropical mash up – Kingston vibes via Belém.

A beautiful vinyl edition as always – grab that or stream on Bandcamp.

The chorus of “Quando Será” is unnervingly apt for our times tool, “Quando será que eu vou te ver?”, or “When will I see you?” the song asks. Well until we see each other, Music With Soul offers some musical relief in the form of this collaborative song.

The B side offers a beautiful touching instrumental version, led by the impeccable flute rendition of Brazilian multi-instrumentalist Gabriel Milliet, a prominent member of the Brazilian music scene in Amsterdam and Alex’s long time collaborator having shared the stage countless times in the past 3 years. His delicate phrasing will give you goosebumps.
