FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE –

The international collaboration of musicians known as Bossa Negra have released their latest single, titled, “Down Under.” The single is a work that blends the talents and sounds of many disparate cultures in celebration of Australia's Socceroos soccer team, who recently won their bid for qualification to the 2014 World Cup championship tournament. 2014's World Cup will be hosted by Brazil.

The single is a bossa nova track showcasing the gentle joyousness and fun-loving nature of the Brazilian sound. In addition to its genuine South-American flavor, it also features some surprising elements both pleasing to the ear and intriguing to the mind of a music aficionado, such as delicate female vocals sung in Chinese as well as English.

Bossa Negra writes, “This single aims to create an Australian/Brazilian fusion by taking a well-known Australian song rearranged with a Brazilian 'samba-reggae' arrangement from the state of Bahia to create a truly cross-cultural project to celebrate the 'Socceroos...'

The single track is a musical concept from producers Howard Lee and Latin-Grammy winner Sérgio Luiz Brandão, with the aim of making Brazilian music accessible outside of Brazil without compromising the integrity of the music. It features celebrated music legends from both Brazil and Australia.

“[Our song] aims to celebrate the commonalities of both countries,” writes Bossa Negra, “such as our love of the beach, music and sports.”

The single has also been released with a handful of bonuses, such as a karaoke track for singers and precision drum loops for practicing percussionists. Dancers with a penchant for the Bahian style of dance will also find the music exceptionally suitable.

Bossa Negra cite as main artistic influences such titans of the sound as Ivete Sangalo, Daniela Mercury, Carlinhos Brown, Timbalada, Gilberto Gil, and Caetano Veloso.

Bossa Negra made their international debut at the Shanghai World Expo of 2010 with a series of performances at the Americas and Greenland stages. They are responsible for bringing Brazilian music to the mainstream Chinese audience for the first time by singing in English, Mandarin and Cantonese. They released the world's first bossa nova song to be sung in Chinese in the summer of 2011.

“Down Under” by Bossa Negra is available online worldwide.
