The singularity of Telebossa's music is the result of a stunning interplay between musical cultures and the incessant exploration of Samba, Jazz and Chamber Music. In this music, Bossa can seem at times very distant while the Donaueschinger Musiktage (where compositions by Chico Mello have been performed) and Kapital Band 1 (Nicholas Bussmann's most recent band project on the Mosz label) can be very close. Both Bussmann and Mello are at home in South America and Europe in equal measures. They combine Brazilian heritage such as Noel Rosa's "Seculo do Progresso" seamlessly with Minimal Music, Improv and Electronica.
