O’s Notes: Raízes is billed as Jewish music re-imagined as Brazilian song, a rather interesting concept. The songs have dual identities; Yiddish tunes housed in Brazilian samba and bossa nova and could capture the hearts of both audiences. Nicole does a fine job with the lyrics supported by a fine team of musicians that includes Pablo Aslan on bass, percussionist Cyro Baptista and Brandon Seabrook on mandolin and guitar. Nicole was one of the first female partners in a Big 8 accounting firm in Brazil. She followed her passion for singing and blended her roots and experiences into a modified art form, an appreciable effort highlighted by “Chuva” and “Ontem”.
