Brazil-born, St. John’s, NL-based singer-songwriter, Ana Luisa Ramos released her debut album in 2016 followed by an EP in November 2020 written by Eric Taylor Escudero, Ana’s now-husband who is also a musician.
Now, Ana’s set to release her sophomore album, Amanheceu next month. The release features five songs that Ana wrote independently, including “Céu Azul”.
“Céu Azul” is a mid-tempo, Brazilian Bossa Nova love song about the passage of time. Involving themes of the seasons and nature, “Céu Azul” eloquently connects nature to our experiences in life – both happy and sad. The warmth of the simple, delicate melody of the song is comforting and peaceful, and Ana hopes to have listeners find the traditional Brazilian rhythm to be easy to listen to and relaxing.
“Céu Azul is a song that was written and recorded in Brazil and also in Newfoundland. It is about the beauty of those cold blue-sky days and the change of seasons. In Céu Azul, nature works as a metaphor for different aspects of life, our expectations and disappointments, the happiness we find in the small things, and simple and pure love.”
