Lifelong loves for MPB and Bossanova guide Winter and Triptides’ new collaboration
Originally appeared on the 405, view archived article here.
Estrela Mágica is a project spurred by a mutual love for Brazilian music. Samira Winter lived in Curitiba for her formative years listening to her mother’s MPB (música popular brasileira) records, while Glenn Brigman developed a love for bossanova through his roommate in college. Now both are based in LA, making music as Winter and Triptides respectively. Together, their sound merges into something both noisy and tropical, prominent in their first single from the album, “Amiga.”
