Ley Line Shares New Song “Ciranda”
- Austin-based folk group Ley Line has shared a new song “Ciranda” from their upcoming sophomore album “We Saw Blue”.
The band first performed the song on Rádio Universitária FM 99.9 in 2017.
The name of the song comes from a style of music that originated on the beaches of Northeastern Brazil. This music, composed by fishermen and their wives, often speaks of their spiritual connection to the ocean and the powerful relationship that the community has with it.
This particular song was written by a man who went by the name Capiba. He wrote the song “Ciranda e Frevo” about the nearby beach called “Praia do Janga.”
Guitarist/Vocalist Emilie Basez explains, “In an effort to share this beautiful tradition with our audiences here in the United States and beyond, we decided to call the song “Ciranda,” which actually refers to the tradition itself.”
The new album “We Saw Blue” is expected to be released this fall along with a visual EP documenting their three month tour through Brazil that inspired the songs.
