Meet Jonas, a 23-year-old Spotify playlist curator from Brazil.
“My name is Jonas Coutinho Gonçalves, I am 23 years old. I live in the northeast region of Brazil, Salvador city. Cinema is one of my passions, and I desire to become a film director in the future. I guess music is a huge part of my life.”
What's the soundtrack of your life?
I guess a world without music would be way harder to live on. I enjoy many different kinds of music from Chopin to My Chemical Romance, but I am mainly a huge fan of folk and indie rock.
Music or lyrics? Why?
I think music is more important since there's a lot of songs I enjoy that do not have any lyrics.
It is hard for me to choose a single artist. I have a hundred favorite songs as well as favorite albums, but the one I am listening to the most currently is Edgar. Last year he put out a magnificent album called 'Ultrassom.' He mixes electronic sounds with very interesting lyrics about humanity as a species. He also makes some disturbing predictions about our future. I highly recommend you take the time to listen to this album all the way through.
If you could interview an artist who would it be? Dead or alive.
I would love to interview Cazuza. He was a huge star here in Brasil and had a lot more to give us. Unfortunately, he passed away way too soon.
Glue Trip. They have a psychedelic rock sound that is from another world. They are pretty small at the moment, but it wouldn't surprise me if they become more popular in the future. If you need to chill out and you don't know what to listen to, put on a track like 'Elbow Pain.' It will put you in another dimension!
