MUSIC REVIEW: THE RETURN OF BANDA BLACK RIO ON FAR OUT!


William Magalhães forms a modern-day Banda Black Rio epitomising the spirit of his father Oberdan’s original ‘70s Brazilian samba soul and funk group. BBR defined the Black Rio movement now enjoying a revival headed by Magalhães’ incarnation with the passion of soul and funk again linking Rio and New York for a feel-good blast that also takes in hip-hop, samba, pop and bossa. 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. Super Nova Samba Funk brings Rio’s black music cultures together to embody the ecstatic revival of Brazil and the Black Rio movement. As you read this we are rocking to Isabella a brilliant salsa/dance groove which features Elza Soares WHAT A PLEASURE. For the more refined ‘Final Feliz’ plods through a electronic maze of guitar riffs and has a traditional feel much aided by the Caetano Veloso who we adore he has over 30 studio albums under his belts and when he scats its almost early George Benson (before the alleged nose job) check ‘Bicho’ we have that album on the office shelves.

All in all you cannot go wrong with this album from start to finish it’s simply a blast! BUY IT HERE
