Eldissa reimagines the disco classics as bossa nova and acoustic lounge.
The songs chosen for What A Difference… include disco tracks made famous by The BeeGees, Abba and Michael Jackson. Eldissa transform these well known pieces into their own brand of Brazilian cool, blending the Bossa Nova sound and a healthy measure of Lounge-Chic into these classic tracks.
It took us two years of hard work, selecting just the right songs, choosing the best tempo and creating the lush arrangements heard on this recording. At this point, we began the search for the singer best suited to lead the music. After advertising widely, and selecting from over 120 singers, they chose three brilliant female vocalists.
Ambient backgrounds combine with cleanly played acoustic guitar to create unexpected new possibilities which the soothingly phrased vocals float over. Even in the midst of a hectic city day, the listener can feel transported away to a sun-drenched beach, or perhaps a sophisticated lounge party.
Eldissa’s classy arrangements and the obvious respect for the songs chosen add a deeper level of musicality in a genre where sometimes gimmickry and superficiality are paramount. With “What a Difference…” the subtleties in the music are allowed to seep through without stifling the sense of sheer fun and joie de vivre.
For those who enjoy a relaxed sophistication in their music, without requiring the all-too prevalent, world-weary cynicism that often accompanies it, Eldissa’s “What a difference…” provides a refreshing change.
