The man on everybody's lips as the saviour of modern bossa nova may have played but a couple of live shows this side of the state border, but the anticipation for his debut album, released on 9 October, couldn't be much hotter. The five track EP that blew up on the internet in 2011 got tongues wagging about this new young talent from Espírito Santo who plied his trade busking on the streets of Ireland as a student before returning to Brazil to set up a home studio and start making music full time.
The results are a joyfully innocent-sounding wander through youth, and with James Blake collaborator Matt Colton in charge of mastering the album, those tracks which first got Silva noticed will doubtless be beefed up and filled out to appeal to an even wider audience. Expect a packed Studio RJ tonight, then, full of first-on-the-button devotees and intrigued newcomers. Undoubtedly the gig of the week, and if that wasn't enough, another man-of-the-moment, Yugo from Os Ritmos Digitais, takes command of Discoteca Maverick from midnight.
