Arto Lindsay has always been one to cross over geographical and musical borders and is, for that reason, especially well suited to serve as an ambassador between various forms of music. Born in the USA and raised in Brazil, Lindsay grew up with the Tropicàlia movement in the 60s. His musical career began in the New York No-Wave scene, after which he increasingly dedicated himself to a crossover between rock, pop and jazz until, several years ago, he found his home in a fusion of Brazilian folklore and delicate songwriting in which electronic beats serve as the foundation. In the meantime, the multi-facetted songwriter, singer and guitarist enjoys an international reputation as an artist whose works are both seductive and demanding.
