Elza Soares - The Woman At The End Of The World

Elza Soares

Elza Soares - The Woman At The End Of The World


Over a sprawl of distorted guitars, squalling horns, taught strings and electronic shards, Elza sings, spits and screams tales of a life in Brazil that is anything but a tropical paradise. On this album Elza has teamed up with the cream of São Paulo's avant-garde musicians from bands such as Meta Meta & Bixiga 70 for an album of apocalyptic, experimental samba sujo ('dirty samba')where samba is savaged by rock 'n' roll, free-jazz, noise and other experimental music forms. The Woman at the end of the world is Elza's 34th studio album and her first to feature previously unrecorded material, exclusively composed for her. Voted 'Best Album of 2015' by Rolling Stone Brazil Elza's ilife-story is a rags-to-riches-to-rags rollercoaster of triumphs and tragedies that has made her a voice for Brazil's repressed female, black, gay and working class populations.
