Lucas Santtana

Originated from Salvador de Bahia, black capital city of a resisting Nordeste, this multi-instrumentalist guitarist, nephew of Tom Zé and son of the historical Producer Roberto Sant’Ana, has frequented tropicalist environment very early. From this radical mouvement which emerged in Brazil at the end of the 60’s and was led by Gilberto Gil, Tom Zé or Caetano Veloso, the author-composor and performer kept in mind and in precept : every vision of modernity go through a rupture. After the electronical collages of his begginings, he signs with his eighth album, O Céu E Velho Ha Muito Tempo (The sky has been old for a long time) published at NoFormat in 2019, a return to the guitar-voice simplicity and depicts a hard and filterless picture of the political and cultural situation of his country.
