We’d like to introduce you to this giant of musical endeavour, the ‘Colossus of Rio’, as he’s known. For Ed’s sweetly agreed to be our point man on all matters smooth for this latest TSTD collection, where we take a dive into an often overlooked side of Brazilian music: Brazilian soul, funk and AOR.

Meet Ed Motta – a true Brazilian original
At the end of the 1980s Ed Motta burst upon the music scene as a major singer and one of the writers and producers in the band Conexão Japeri. This young nephew of Brazil’s legendary soul icon Tim Maia was an instant hit on the Carioca show circuit and the band’s 1988 debut album, „Ed Motta and Conexão Japeri“, confirmed his promise, including several big national hits. The songs were marked by a lavish musicality and introduced strong soul, jazz and funk elements into Brazil’s conventional pop-rock scene. It was soon clear that at the precocious age of just 16, Ed Motta had a musical vision and heaps of ambition.
