Sessa Estrela Acesa

Estrela Acesa is out June 24th!

Today, São Paulo-born songwriter Sessa (Sergio Sayeg) has announced his sophomore full-length Estrela Acesa, his first for Mexican Summer. Reflecting a deep reverence for the rich musical heritage of Brazil, Estrela Acesa, which translates to Burning Star, explores love both sensuous and divine amid the crushing reality of the present, finding heavenly pleasure within the darkness.

Lead single “Gostar do Mundo” pairs tropical bossa nova sway with dramatic strings and rhythmic accents that Sessa likens to the roots reggae influence of Johnny Clarke. São Paulo visual artist Gabriel Rolim directed the mesmerizing accompanying video.
