Premiere: Toada – Apaziguada | Plüma
Berlin-based Portuguese producer Toada returns to his own Plūma label with the five track EP Viveza.
Drawing on his personal experience of 2020, in the midst of a pandemic and with the exposed social instability, Toada came to the realisation that by working on his physical and mental health, he could find the strength to face systemic challenges and push for change.
With this in mind, Viveza, meaning ‘liveliness’ in Portuguese, was made with the intention to heal and renew energies for both the artist and listener. Drawing on musical influences from Portuguese speaking countries such as Angola and Brazil, Toada combines these syncopated rhythms with intricate melodies over five uptempo but pensive tracks.
