Sunday Roast / Charlotte dos Santos

good vibes

Born in Oslo, international jazz artist Charlotte dos Santos’ international music reflects her upbringing by a Brazilian father and a Norwegian mother. After the success of two EPs in 2020, the singer-songwriter’s debut album morpho comes out later this year. Here, she tells us about slow-motion Sunday mornings, sailing and a favorite recipe.

Where will we meet you this weekend?
If the weather is nice, I’ll take a boat to one of the islands in the fjord for a day at the beach. This Sunday evening I will be in an open-air arthouse cinema by the sea.

Ideal to start on a Sunday? Soft start or jerk?
Ideally, it’s coffee in bed or at the kitchen table. I like to sit by the window with good soul music on the record player and an espresso. I like mild mornings.

What’s for breakfast?
I tend to go down to Åpent Bakeri for a cappuccino and a croissant. The outdoor terrace under the cherry trees is soothing during the summer. Babbo Oslo Bakery in Parkveien is also cute for a date or a small group outing.

Lunch inside or outside?
Out! The Vandelay in the Barcode district, Grådi in Tøyen or Vespa & Humla in Grünerløkka are all options.

An exercise ?
Sunday is a day of rest.

A Sunday soundtrack?
A whole playlist, usually including “Can’t Hide Love” by Earth Wind and Fire, “Pity a Fool” by Carl Sims, “Everybody Loves the Sunshine” by Roy Ayers and “Marimba” by Sérgio Santos.

Sunday culture must?
The markets in Vestkanttorget or Grünerløkka are lovely and you can buy everything from vintage vases and vinyl records to Norwegian waffles. Last week I bought a hand woven basket from Tanzania and a glass vase from Venice. On rainy days, Henie Onstad is my favorite museum. I grew up in the neighborhood.

News or not?
These days I limit the news, but if I do, it’s The New York Times and Hyperallergic for artistic news. As for podcasts, it’s either Reply to all Where song exploder.

A glass of something?
Maybe a glass of white or rosé. Recently I went to Matassa Olla Blanc.

What is on the menu?
In the summer, I like to make a simple salad – maybe with fennel, nectarines and fresh mozzarella – or zucchini and ricotta rigatoni.

Sunday night routine?
A stroll through Vigeland Sculpture Park or a seaside walk in Bygdøy are my favorite ways to spend the evening, watch the sunset and also take a stroll.
