New Release

Single- NosMeusSonhos

Nos meus sonhos (In My Dreams) is an original Brazilian jazz song by Rachel Beausoleil, Evandro Gracelli, with the help of Brazilian poet Álvaro Faleiros. This is the second single from the new album Sol da Capital, set to be released in September 2022. 

The song is about the perfection that we can perceive in dreams that doesn’t bear out in real life… We must enjoy the perfect world in our dreams, knowing that reality is also full of beauty and pleasure.

The OAC is supporting the recording of my next album, Sol da Capital! This album of originals will make good on a project that began when guitarist-composer Evandro Gracelli was in Ottawa a dozen years ago!

Performances in Canada and Brazil have kept the music alive. And more songs have been added thanks to long-distance work over the internet.

The nudge we needed came when the Ottawa Music Industry Coalition required original music for my Encore Ottawa 2021 performance. Three of the songs I performed will end up on the 2022 Sol da Capital album!

So looking forward to finally recording this material! Thank you, thank you, thank you, Ontario Arts Council!!

In case you missed it the first time (or even if didn’t!), you can now view my Encore Ottawa performance from the fall of 2020.So very grateful to all partners: Ottawa Music Industry Coalition (OMIC), the Shenkman Arts Centre, RogersTV and Apt613! Merci, merci, merci!!

The first single from my new album with Evandro Gracelli, is out now on all your favourite digital platforms!
