Killer gem from Brazil!!
This is a widely unknown, but excellent and charming conglomerate of Hip Hop, electronic music, Funk, Soul and Jazz with the finest Brazilian music traditions like Samba. Eduardo Bidlovski (Bid) is the composer and producer of this 2005 album and he not only has created a bunch of smooth, but never dull songs. Bid also assembled extraordinary guests for “Bambas & Biratas”. Black Rio Soul legend Carlos Daffé opens the record with his warm voice on the catchy tune “não pára”, while Samba Queen Elza Soares later proves she also fits perfectly on relaxed tunes. But this is not a record that tries to gather attentions with Brazilian singer legends, the majority are contemporary artists and Brazil has a rich scene which fuses modern influences with traditional aspects. Rapper Black Alien, whizz kid Chico Science or everybody’s darling Seu Jorge are a few of them and also do participate. All in all 56 musicians were involved in this highly recommend work. Vol. 2 is announced for end of the year.
I´m back and in the meanwhile urbanology reached the 100.000th visitor, hurray!
“Tranquilo” is Marcelinho da Lua´s, producer, DJ and singer from Brasil (or the moon?) first record and is anything, but not calm as the title suggests. I don´t want to spend to many words on this record (in fact I´m just to lazy to read all the informations about him, which are only in portuguese), just let you know the record includes a cover version of “Cotidiano” by Chico Buarque, woah. And Marcelinho da Lua is brewing a killer mix of electronic styles on his debut and beside the cover version of that classic brasilian song Seu Jorge and Gilberto Gil are participating. Woah for the third time today, an awesome ecclectic record and I guess you will say whoaah too, after listened to this record.
