Item ID: 466248

Fourth album by Sao Paulo's acclaimed 10-piece instrumental collective. Urban Afro-Brazilian grooves, empowered horn-driven melodicism and massive dance floor inspiration. One of South America's most exhilarating musical propositions. Africa is everywhere in Brazil, and it pulses through the music on 'Quebra Cabec', Bixiga 70's second studio album for Glitterbeat, where two continents dance together across the black Atlantic. The result still captures the incendiary excitement of Bixiga 70 live, but the freedom of the studio brings more shade and subtlety than before. The rhythms are more sinuous than ever, snaking through the funk in way that looks more to Ghana or Nigeria than Memphis or Muscle Shoals, while the horns strut in powerful harmonies. For Bixiga 70, Africa will always be the root, and Brazil its vibrant flower.

Also available: QUEBRA CABECA (2LP) (LP).
