“Today, that voice – acrobatic, sensual, both angelic and profane – is what listeners of his Tropicalia-inspired music first latch on to. It’s his voice that gets first mention in most reviews”
"Voice of an angel, extravagant pageantry, he claims tropicalism as a musical influence but also James Baldwin, Nina Simone and Albert Camus for the political part"
"Capinan's art is both celebration and protest"
"Tara Rara is brimming with yearning (via Capinan's smoky, seductive vocals) and celebration (heard in the many layers of upbeat instrumentation), using memory and nostalgia as the catalyst for imagining a better future and knowing you deserve it"
"The new album from Toronto-based, Brazilian-Canadian singer-songwriter Capinan is a jewel"
“Bruno Capinan grew up in Bahia, with the prophets of samba da rua in his ears, and then above all the aesthetes of tropicalism, starting with Caetano Veloso, whose subtle inflection he kept for sublime transgression, this little nothing bittersweet ambiguity that gives flavor to any tune”
"Sparkling crown, elegant suit, extravagant shoes, Bruno Capinan could be the character of a science fiction film shot in another galaxy, but above all he is a sacred voice"
“That unswerving determination and dedication comes out in Capinan’s performance, complete with dramatic, sometimes whimsical costumes and the unmistakable soft lull of his singing voice”
