"De Repente California" by Lulu Santos
from Tempos Modernos
It looks many of you guys are from CA, so hopefully this totd will pleasure you (1) and me (2):
(1) Lulu is a pop rock singer with nice tracks for some 25 years by now. This one is about going or moving to California. The best passage IMHO says "in California it is different, brother, much more than a dream, time passes more slowly ..." (err, different and slowly ryme in portuguese...)
(2) I am actually spending next fri/saturday in LA. Any tips on clubs/parties? Anyone there up for a drink with a brazilian bloke?
"Ovo da Serpente" by Uakti
An amazing group, Uakti built their own instruments like the glass marimba or the plastic tube pan, invented a music writting style and collaborated with a bunch of crazy ppl such as Phillip Glass... This video does not have a good sound quality, but there are plenty of other recordings on utube in better shape.
"Feel Like Good Music" by Juice
Almost summertime here in Sao Paulo matches fine with the great party+music we had yesterday. Feels good! .
"Quem Não Quer Sou Eu" by Seu Jorge
from Música Para Churrasco Vol. 1
A proper soul man, Seu Jorge brings some brazilian "malandragem" (shenanigans) to it in great style! And I would have chosen "sounds best when played on a barbecue"... ;-)
"Alone - Sax Ambient Version" by Don Carlos
When I heard this track yesterday while dancing with my baby daughter it reminded me of all the happy sunsets I never saw in Ibiza...
"The Seven Powers" by Bahia Black
from Ritual Beating System
Funny colab between brazilian percussionist Carlinhos Brown and his drum band Oludum with Herbie Hancock, Wayne Shorter and produced by Bill Laswell... (enough big names for the weekend).
"Confusion" by Tevo Howard
newer kid on the block with some nu-retro-house...
"Piani" by Jo Tongo
if this can't move ya, you better go and see the doc! Piani
"Northern Lights" by Pod
from The Vanguard EP
All techno-heads around should know this, but check it out in case you aren't one. Beautiful and trippy electronics...
"O Galho Da Roseira" by Airto
from Seeds on the ground
My second contrib has to be from Hermeto Pascoal. It's his song and he plays the piano here. The rabeca (odd 4-string country guittar) is by Sivuca and percussion by Dom Um Romão, both great brazilian instrumentalists. There is a crazier/more free version of this song in Hermeto's 1st LP...
