Skobah mixes Blue-Eyed-Soul with Latin Pop, as a foundation to this rough and passionate voice.
In August 2011 he released a self-titled CD that run for the XIII Latin Grammy (2012) in several categories: (i) Record of the Year; (ii) Album of the Year; (iii) Song of the Year; (iv) Best New Artist; (v) Best Brazilian Contemporary Pop Album; (vi) Best Brazilian Song (4 songs1); and (vii) Producer of the Year.
In this CD Skobah presents the purest Latin Pop in original songs and also a portuguese authorized version of “Country Roads”, with a lot of swing tempered with an incredible brass section, strong percussions and dancing beats.
It also brings two ballads in the same Soul-Latin line, a country rock and a tribute to “Mutantes”, called “Samurai Tropical”.
Despite the density of studio work, Skobah’s live performances are memorable experiences, burning the soul and the dance floor with hits from: Blues Brothers, Sam & Dave, Phil Collins, Ray Charles, Stevie Wonder, Wilson Pickett, Carlos Santana, among others Soul, Funk and R&B classics.
Energy on stage connects the audience with the band formed by 12 first-rate musicians, containing a unique and synchronized brass section.
Skobah also launched an acoustic reinterpretation project of Motown classics called “Soulcustic”, performing with his TW 45, also used in recordings that can be found on digital platforms:
