✨✧ VariousDesconstrucao – A Portrait Of Sao Paulo's Musical Scene ... CD
Goma Gringa (Brazil), 2016. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A killer collection of contemporary underground sounds from Brazil – not the kind of bigger pop that usually filters over here from the world music market – but instead a range of really well-chosen tracks that beautifully illustrate a new wave of creativity in the city of Sao Paulo! Despite the violence of the cover image, the music is mostly very intimate and personal – well-crafted songs that draw on earlier legacies of Brazilian music – with strands of samba, bossa, forro, and more – plus a good dose of the more experimental recent generation – all mixed together with a great deal of care, and a sense of songwriting that transcends the boundaries of language! Some of these cuts feel as if they could be from rare indie sides from the 70s, others bear a much more contemporary spirit – and together, they go a long way towards changing anyone's idea of what might be going on in 21st Century Sao Paulo. Titles include "Pena Mais Que Perfeita" by Jucara Marcal, "Obatala" by Meta Meta, "Space Charanga Abdu" by Thiago Franca, "Abraco De Ozu" by Rodrigo Campos, "Karina" by Vincente Barreto, "Na Multidao" by Thiago Franco, "Os Olhos Dela" by Rodrigo Campos, and "Oranian" by Meta Meta.
