Botafogo – A Electro-Lounge Debut Album for Carlos Bichai

Les Disques Passeport

Montreal, February 2016 – Montreal songwriter Carlos Bichai just released his very first album, named Botafogo. An intimate incursion into the realm of electro-lounge, the album’s 13 original tracks set a spellbinding sound that whisks you away into a world of dreams, desire, and fantasy. The album is available at selected Archambault stores and online on iTunes and Google Play.

Local and exotic influences

Carlos discovered his love for music and the desire to write captivating melodies in Montreal. Drawing on his interest in everything trendy, from fashion, art, cafés and restaurants, he has crafted an album whose exotic sounds are inspired by the cultural and artistically diverse richness of the Quebec scene, and Montreal in particular.

For the title of his first album, Carlos is inspired by his birthplace, Botafogo, a cosmopolitan neighbourhood in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, whose similarities with Montreal are striking. For him, Botafogo represents the fire that burns inside each of us, sparking the awareness that anything is possible if we believe in it, that our dreams can come true.

“I have always expressed my artistic side through music and poetry,” said Carlos Bichai. “With my first album, I wanted to create the perfect musical ambiance for those special evenings spent with friends, enjoying good food and wine, that create lasting memories.”
