Super Nova Samba Funk


Last copies... RSD UK JUNE DROP RELEASE. Color vinyl. Super Nova Samba Funk, the comeback album from Banda Black Rio, featuring Brazilian heavyweights Seu Jorge, Marcio Local, Elza Soares, Cesar Camargo Mariano, and more. Originally released in 2011, this edition features two tracks from the project that were never released on vinyl, "Irerê (feat. Gilberto Gil)" and "Aos Pés Do Redentor (feat. Caetano Veloso)". William Magalhães formed Banda Black Rio as a modern-day incarnation of his father Oberdan's original '70s Brazilian samba soul and funk outfit. Reigniting the Black Rio flame, Magalhaes brought together Brazilian icons Seu Jorge, Marcio Local, and Elza Soares feature alongside bossa pioneers Caetano Veloso and Gilberto Gil, as well as Flame Killer and GOD PT3 from the famed NYC Mobb Deep crew for the project. With a renaissance in Brazil's black music culture led by a new generation of soul, funk, and hip-hop artists BBR finally returned with a brand new formation for comeback album Rebirth in 2000, before launching their most ambitious project to date with 2011's Super Nova Samba Funk -- the group's sixth studio album produced and led by William Magalhães. The philosophy on Super Nova Samba Funk remains the same: celebrating the musicality of black Brazil through strong lyrical representation and its unique combination of jazz, funk, soul, samba, and gafieira. "Super Nova Samba Funk (9 No Samba)" and "Samba Nova" are two special instrumental tracks that showcase Rio's finest players who together form BBR. Isabela combines elegant brass, jazz, and gafieira swing that counts the special input of Elza Soares -- the legendary scatting samba singer -- and Cesar Carmargo Mariano -- the famed pianist and arranger, father of Maria Rita, and husband to Elis Regina. Seu Jorge -- world famous Brazilian musician, singer, songwriter, and actor famed for his roles in City of God and Life Aquatic whose latest music project with Almaz signed to Stones Throw Records -- distinctive samba vocals fire the infectious Brazilian soul-pop of Louis Lane and Lindos Olhes -- Jorge featuring alongside respected Brazilian R&B and rap stars Dom Pixote and Mano Brown; Marcio Local -- a major new Brazilian star signed to David Byrne's Luaka Bop. Also features Aleh.
