Image: 1606402 Luaka Bop presents key long out of print classic back on vinyl!

Moreno, Kassin and Domenico were childhood friends from school. They formed a band and made three albums, each one under a different one’s name. Their records are different and very influential in Brazil.
Morneo is the son of legendary Brazilian musician Caetano Veloso. You can hear him at age 8 on the first Luaka Bop release (“Beleza Tropical”) singing the words “Ilê Ayê” on Caetano’s song of the same name.
Moreno’s record is to some extent the most conventional of the three, even though Domenico, the drummer, plays drums on a sampler and cymbal sounds using sand aper. The next release, Domenico’s, had the greatest success in the indie world, while Kassin’s album is the most produced (which makes sense as he has become one of the most successful producers in Brazil).
