Song of the Week: Dalminjo – “Bossa Note”

Dalminjo, a new artist with a Brazilian-sounding name and a hit called “Bossa Note,” is – wouldn’t you know it – from icy Norway. Dalminjo is actually the name adopted by Ole Roar Granli, a producer who has previously recorded under the name ORG Lounge.

Anyway, it just goes to show how influential Brazilian music is worldwide, especially in the chill/downtempo genre.

Dalminjo has the groove down pat, with nicely repeating acoustical guitar chords, soft percussion and lush background vocals straight from a Bond movie.

This delicious song is from Dalminjo’s CD Fjord Fusioneer on the Kriztal label.
