Out Now: Estrela Acesa


Estrela Acesa is out now!

Today, São Paulo-born Sessa, aka multi-instrumentalist Sergio Sayeg, releases his dazzling, exuberant sophomore album and Mexican Summer debut Estrela Acesa. The album, which translates to Burning Star, has already earned major praise from The New Yorker, FADER, Uncut, Uproxx and more for its deep reverence for the rich musical heritage of Brazil and lush orchestrations that evoke the timeless works of Tom Jobim and Arthur Verocai, melded with the vivid timbres of spiritual seekers like Alice Coltrane, and his stories sung in Portuguese with the poetic directness of compatriot of the heart Leonard Cohen.
