Waterloo Records

Eclectic singer Aurélien Merle goes wherever pleasure leads him. Whether it's solo with his intimate folk songs, as a quartet and with humor alongside the Goguettes, or interpreting artists like William Sheller and Divine Comedy, or immersing himself in the vast repertoire of Brazilian music, he let's himself be guided like a 'cork' floating along the water, as depicted by French singer Pierre Barouh. His affinity for the 70s naturally led him to explore the realms of Chico Buarque and the tropicalism of Gilberto Gil and Caetano Veloso, among others. This 2-CD edition is dedicated to the repertoire that Aurélien Merle has been regularly performing on stage since 2010. It includes a live recording, "No Peristilo", a solo concert recorded in 2022 at the Peristyle Festival in Lyon, and a 4-track studio CD, "No Peito", featuring a duet with Brazilian singer Mônica Salmaso. The two discs contrast with the minimalist purity of a voice and a folk guitar on one side, and on the other, the rich arrangements (by Benjamin Petit Delor), the warmth of brass and winds, and the play of percussion. But in both discs, the chest ("peito") loosens, the voice blossoms, and daylight emerges. Saravá!
