Critic Review - Fréttabladid Newspaper

On last Friday 01/03/2013 came out the first specialized critic review about my CD Rio / Reykjavik. Interesting that the nice critic review came out in the Rio de Janeiro's birthday. On 01/03/2013 Rio completed 448 years!!! Below , you can read the critic translated into English. 

Jussanam - Rio / Reykjavik

Jussanam is a singer from Brazil who has lived in Iceland for some years and received the Icelandic Citizenship two years ago. Rio / Reykjavik is her second album, her first one , which was released in the Salurrinn, it had songs by the Brazilian composer, Tom Jobim.

On the new album, there are three songs from the Jobim's collection but also songs written by Jussanam herself in collaboration with some other musicians, including Ingvi Thor Kormàrksson and the Swedish musician Harald Erici, who has attracted attention throughout his Brasilicum project with Jussanam among the singers who took part in it. Added to that, the álbum includes two well-known Icelandic songs:Gettu Hver hún er and þú komst hjartað í mér text in Portuguese.

The music on Rio / Reykjavik is soft and relaxing latin-jazz and Bossa Nova. The musicians are not of little value; Ásgeir Ásgeirsson, Birgir Bragason,Matthías Hemstock, Haukur Gröndal, Agnar Már Magnússon and Cheick Bangoura.

The songs are all in this soft style, but still there are songs with some variety.Some are in traditional Brazilian jazz style, while others, like the great "O Telefonema" carried out lounge music. Jussanam is a cool song Lady. Her voice and singing style suit this music perfectly.Its nice to hear her singing in Icelandic Gettu Hver hún er The arrangements of þú komst hjartað í mér is also quite good, and the song sounds good in Portuguese.

Overall, this is a fine album with Jussanam. She does not blaze new trails but the album is very well done and flows well throughout.

Samba Rumba - By Ingvi Thor Kormárksson and Jussanam


I am glad that I recorded a participation in the album Latin Faculty (Latinudeildin) invited by Ingvi Thor Kormarkssón by side of so great Icelandic Singers.

 Ingvi Thor Kormárksson invited me to write the lyrics in Portuguese for one of his songs "Við dönsum samba" and I wrote and gave the name "Samba-Rumba" for my version into Portuguese.

The song is singing by me in Portuguese and also in Icelandic by Mjöll Holm with Ingvi lyrics in Icelandic.

 On this link you can hear my version in Portuguese:

NEW CD Coming out 30/11

Hello all,

I am very happy that my new CD is coming out very soon: 30/11 21:00 at Frikirkjan Reykjavik. The concert is supported by the Brazilian Embassy in Oslo.

I am very happy with the recording with my Band.My musicians are really wonderful and the arrangements are all by them.

The difference in this new CD is that it has musics by myself in partnership with several composers and it gives me a special feeling.

I am very glad with my new CD cover. I love the cover painting by Izabela Hadrian , an artist from Poland that is

living in Reykjavik. Great job by her!

Well... I just hope you enjoy my new CD because me and my Band, we enjoyed to make it!
