Stazione Leopolda di Firenze | IT
in collaboration with A Buzz Supreme
Tulipa Ruiz presents her fourth album, TU (YOU), entirely recorded in New York. In an intimate dimension, Brazilian singer and composer collects unpublished songs of her repertoire, rearranging them with the collaboration of her brother Gustavo Ruiz and Stéphane San Juan.
TU, in capslock to accentuate the graphics of the word and then bring us into its meaning. TU are me and you. TU is us. TU is also two, me and Gustavo, my brother and musical partner. TU is an offer, a gift.
The idea of the album was born after a tour we did together, voice and guitar, a format that I like to call “naked” because the songs are “undressed” becoming minimal. Playing them in this way brought us closer to the core of each piece and I wanted to record them like this: a guitar, a voice and a few percussion.
This is the concept of the album. Especially at a time when technology takes us away from the essence and the overdose of information overloads us, I wanted to make a more intimate and cozy record. In times of superficial relationships, this is an album that brings me closer to the bonfire ritual, to the look face-to-face, to my friends, old and new.
The concert is opened by Brazilian music producer, composer and singer Gui Amabis.
