The most Brazilian Contemporary French singer-songwriter.
New release a Pura Essência Da Malemolência / La Malémolence.
A native Parisian of Armenian descent, singer, songwriter and guitar-player Nicola Són has been a permanent resident of São Paulo, Brazil's largest city, for the past 5 years. In a previous album trilogy and an EP with the hit “Amanhã já era” (+than 400.00 streams), the artist explored different areas of Brazil and their specific rhythms. He recorded great names of the Brazilian scene, João Donato, Casuarina or Zeca Baleiro.
In April 2019, Nicola Són releases a single in the vein of “Amanhã já era”, but this time in 2 versions, Portuguese and French: “A pura essência da malemolência” and “La malémolence”.
To celebrate the release of this new soulful track, Nicola Són will be making various tours: from May to September in France and Germany, and in October in Japan and New Zealand.
Throughout his prolific recording career, Nicola Són has cemented a cultural bridge between Brazilian music and chanson française. His debut album Parioca (2010) was produced in Rio and influenced by 60’s samba-jazz fusion band Sambalanço. Nord Destin (2013) showcased legendary pianist composer João Donato as well as carioca samba ensemble Casuarina.
Concluding his Brazilian trilogy with panache, Sampathique (2016) was directed by 80’s influential producer Paul Lepetit, known as the catalyst of Vanguardia Paulista, São Paulo’s vanguard renaissance. “Corações ternos”, track #4 on the disk, effectively paired young Nicola Són with seasoned Brazilian rock star Zeca Baleiro who would later select the song to be featured on his best-of duets compilation.
