Marcos Valle - "Os Grilos" Live Acoustic Session For Gilles Peterson Worldwide

Lenny Kravitz, Grace Jones, Lauryn Hill, Lion Babe, Thundercat, SZA & More Rock The Afropunk Festival 2015 in Brooklyn, NY.

Hip to Marcos Valle yet? If the 4-album re-issue we was just telling you about weren't enough to get you psyched on the Brazilian singer-musician, this stripped-down video should get you hooked. Recorded as the kick-off to Gilles Peterson Worldwide's new video series, Basement Sessions, Valle can be seen performing a solo, acoustic version of "Os Grilos." His playing and singing seem so effortless he practically breathes music. The session was taped, by the way, while the man was in London getting a Lifetime Achievement award at the Worldwide Awards (ressspect!). Check the vid below.
