Sonzeira comes from som (sound) and is related to it. A kind of slang. It means a cool and/or stunning sound (in the sense of music)

This record is the product of Gilles Peterson being a fan and a champion of Brasilian music in the clubs and on the radio for the last 25 years, culminating in him bringing together the country’s finest artists all on one album for the very first time. Recorded in Rio de Janeiro, they collaborated to create a collective called Sonzeira and an album that is Brasil Bam Bam Bam – a true expression of the real soul and authentic sound of Brasil, from its majestic heritage to its super-dynamic present. One of the world’s most respected DJs and Brasilian music aficionados, Gilles turned producer for this ambitious venture, setting up camp in Rio de Janeiro with young UK production trio Sam Shepherd (Floating Points); Dilip Harris and Rob Gallagher from 2 Banks of 4; and Kassin from Rio big band Orquestra Imperial. Together they set about recording all-new material with a stellar line-up of Brasilian talent, under the name Sonzeira. The result, Brasil Bam Bam Bam, is an inspirational portrait of a nation in sound. At its heart are mesmerising vocal performances from superstars young and old, including City of God actor and singer Seu Jorge, and the grande dame of samba, 76-year-old powerhouse Elza Soares.
