Novela plays original songs which are an impressive mix of his musical roots
and all kind of Western influences. His rhythms, melodies and harmonies
reach back to jazz, funk, afrobeat, electro and rock, merging into
authentic multi-styled compositions.
The songs consist of melodic lines, interesting rhythms, breaks and surprising beat changes, with lyrics in Portuguese, English, French and Xangana. His wide-ranged silky voice shows strong musicality and great energy, which brings characteristic sounds from nature and daily life.
