Mosquitos meld the Big Apple and Brazil

In addition to drawing the singer out of Stulbach, the Mosquitos have drawn out Chris Root's latent inner Brazilian. "He used a lot of bossa nova beats in his other band, but he always wanted to do something more in that direction, but I really think he needed to meet somebody from there. Like I have a lot of Brazilian experience and he has a lot of his own musical background, and I think he needed to get that together."

It would be as inaccurate to label Mosquitos as an album of Brazilian music as it would to label, say, Calexico's output as Mexican music. "It's a very natural putting-together of our backgrounds," Stulbach says, speaking of herself and Root. "And Jon Smith is from a different background, so it's like baking a cake a little bit. Jon puts a little bit of his thing in, Chris puts a little of his thing in, and I do the same, and when we see it we really like it. It's kind of a cool experience for the three of us in terms of learning about music we were attracted to but didn't really know. It's a nice triangle like that."
