Ginga A Alma Do Futebol Brasileiro

CD (Item 483450) Lua (Brazil), 2006 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock



A creepy cover, but a really amazing batch of grooves – one that blends rootsy Brazilian percussion with elements of dub, funk, and hip hop – originally recorded as the soundtrack for a documentary on football, but sounding plenty darn great here on its own! Edson X is at the helm of the record, but gets help from a number of other younger artists as well – and the album's awash in tight percussion jams, funky rhythms, stripped down grooves that are all surprisingly free of cliche! At times, there's a bit of the Trama-like blend of old and new going on – but the overall sound is much rougher and more rootsy, filled with live instrumentation and sometimes a bit of the noisier side of baile funk production. Titles include "Forro No Bar", "O Que E A Ginga", "Gingar Para Ser Feliz (Ginga mix)", "Aleluia (baile funk mix)", "O Craque", "A Hora Do Goi (swing guitar)", "Bonde Do Bem (live session)", and "Funk Da Vitoria (extended)".  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Additional Marks & Notes

If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record. This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip, cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.

Used CD Grade

We have only one grade for non-new CDs at Dusty Groove — "Used CD". This grade is somewhat all-encompassing, but we choose it because we try to offer Used CDs in the best shape possible.

When you purchase a Used CD you can expect the disc to be free of all but the lightest of surface marks, the case to be clean (we often change the cases ourselves), and the booklet to be in good shape. Used CDs may show some signs of use but if there are significant details or defects we will list them underneath the item — just like we do with LPs — so look there for notes on cutout marks, stickers, promo stamps or other details.

All of our Used CDs are guaranteed to play without skipping or flaws. If you purchase a Used CD from Dusty Groove, you have 1 week to play it to determine that it plays correctly — and if it does not, then you may return it for a full refund.
