“Echos” is a perfect reflection of the collaborators behind the track, and the harmonious fusion they bring to all their work.
A blend of Brazilian beats and a hip hop flow, the song is like a conversation between the wife and husband duo that make up Diana Purim & Eyedentity. The daughter of renowned Brazilian jazz singer Flora Purim and percussionist Airto Moreira, Diana brings not only a rich legacy to her music, but a life’s long journey with performing. Her husband and musical partner Krishna, carries a legacy of his own, as the son of Jazz bassist, Walter Booker, nephew of Wayne Shorter and godson of Herbie Hancock.
With a gradual rise in energy, the song does just what it preaches. “In essence, Echos is about how our love and reverence of music runs so deep that it’s like a drug which cures all ills,” says Purim. “‘Feel your life force pump through your veins…’ — it talks about how when you feel run down, beaten, lost, through your most difficult and challenging trials in life, that music can console your grief, uplift you from your lowest moments and empower you to greatness.”
