Check it out below…

The making-of ‘Muca Meets Menescal -Until We Meet Again’ features Menescal, one of the pioneers and living legends of the bossa nova. Directed by Eduardo Binato, this video is about Muca, a Brazilian songwriter and producer based in London for over ten years and with different musical influences, having the urge to revisit his Brazilian roots. He met Menescal in London, where they then both started to show their appreciation for the Brazilian most famous music style. Muca then invited Menescal to record some of his tracks, which Menescal happily accepted. Muca flew to Rio specifically to meet and record with Menescal. The footage shows both working together on the recording process and Menescal talking about the history of bossa and some very interesting gems between himself and Jobim.”

The short film shows the recording and composition process of the song between Rio de Janeiro and London. It shows how much Bossa Nova, even after sixty years of existence, is still surprising and touching the hearts of young people around the world.

On the recording process Muca said, “The experience of just being together in the studio with Menescal, with all his experience, exchanging ideas with me was incredible, not to mention the stories from the time of bossa between one chord and another.”

And on how the making-of documentary came about he explains, “One of the best parts of being a musician is having moments like that, which I wanted to document. Filmmaking is recording genuine and unique moments like this; A meeting of generations paced by the wisdom of a music master, teaching and learning. It was a true masterclass”.

Since the song’s release in May ‘Until We Meet Again’ has garnered admirers all over the world, including press and radio support from the BBC, Amazing Radio, Record Of The Day and many more.
