Mundane - 2009

Sometimes a singer is called an "interpreter". This means, of course, that he performs the songs he sings. But real singers, like Arthur Nogueira, are more than interpreters of the songs they sing. In fact, the songs that make up the brilliant album "Mundano" serve Arthur to interpret the light and mystery that he perceives – and that fascinates him – in the world in which he lives.  

Thus, a song like "Mal secreto", composed by Jards Macalé and Waly Salomão in the 1970s, becomes, in Arthur's voice, as contemporary as his own compositions.

This does not mean, in any way, that the record suffers from any type of musical pasteurization. Although endowed, from beginning to end, with a profound unity, rare consistency and high musical and poetic quality, it goes through the most different rhythms and moods, with each of his songs deserving unique and careful treatment.

It is, in short, an original and admirable work, which deserves the widest repercussion.
