Bom Dia Universo
This album was originally released in 1984 and it ́s considered a true gem of Brazilian tropicalia made by the only female member from the "Clube Da Esquina" movement led by Milton Nascimento and Lô Borges. This album was made under the influence of Solange's passion for The Beatles and Elis Regina, and also encouraged by her friend Milton Nascimento to express herself without fear. Solange, who was 30 at the time of this recording, had already made herself a name as singer, composer and instrumentalist. She had joined her brother Lô Borges in the making of some of his most successful albums, including "Clube Da Esquina".
This 2021 reissue contains the original 1984 insert with lyrics plus photos from her personal archives. Solange Borges is a singer, composer, and instrumentalist, born May 1st of 1954, in Belo Horizonte, Minas Gerais state, Brazil. Member of the family of musicians "Borges", Solange started playing guitar and piano and got to know the poetic universe with her brothers Marilton, Márcio and Lô Borges. Born in a family of 11 brothers, she is the only female of the family to become musician and initiated her career as a child performing several commercial jingles for radio and tv ads. The Borges family was an essential landmark for developing music and including other musician friends in the sixties that would initiate the so-called "Clube Da Esquina" movement, that would represent several musicians and records. With figures such as Milton Nascimento, Toninho Horta, Wagner Tiso, Lô Borges, Beto Guedes and Márcio Borges, Clube da Esquina's sound is intensely characterized as innovative. As a characteristic of this innovative sound, there is, for example, a kind of fusion of the innovations brought by Bossa Nova with elements of jazz, rock - mainly the Beatles -, folk music of blacks and Minas Gerais, classical music and Hispanic music. In the 70s, these artists became a quality reference in MPB for their high level of performance and spread their innovations and influence worldwide. Solange Borges is the only female musician member of the collective group "Clube da Esquina" and participated in the album "Os Borges" in 1980, also in the album "Via Láctea", by brother Lô Borges, singing the songs "Vento de Maio" and "Clube da Esquina 2", having released her first LP Bom Dia Universo in 1984.
