"I've never felt better in my life," she says with her irresistible smile. Flavia Coelho is living her best days, both personal and artistic. This is reflected in her fourth album, DNA.
A title as short as it means to say a lot. Everything comes from the roots, Flavia knows that. She came from Brazil, from immigrant parents. He is black, she is white. These origins and her background have nourished DNA - Flavia Coelho's most personal and universal album.
Recorded between the Quartier Latin and the Var, Victor Vagh-Weinmann's two studios, it shines with its musical hybridity. The baile funk crosses the trap and Caribbean music, the cumbia is reinvented, hip hop marries reggae, the Orchestre de chambre de Paris passes through the area... All this was driven by an impressive pop will.
"Popular music is the people, and I am a woman of the people," says Flavia. Here, she confirms her visceral commitment to melodies as catchy as the rhythms.
