|'Folklore' - November 24th Dreamworks Records|
age brings, 'Folklore' draws upon those experiences as well as her Portuguese heritage. With 'Powerless' a search for order in a complicated world, the frantic 'Explode' which draws upon the language of Brazilian marshal arts brought to the country by African slaves and 'Forca', which is a Portuguese slang word, some of those references are clear.
After a year spent in LA, Nelly returned to her adopted hometown of Toronto to record the follow up (she is originally from the city of Victoria, British Columbia). Here, she reunited with the production team Track and Field with whom she forged such a successful partnership on 'Whoa, Nelly!' and 'Folklore' was born.
All in all, 'Folklore' is a colourful, cultural, folky, modern and unique mix of influences and experiences, adding up to a smash record that will certainly cement Nelly Furtado's place as an essential and inventive artist.
