The African beat's always been essential
to Brazil's music. But now the new
generation of musicians, singers and
rappers are tweaking the basics of Fela's
funk to fit with samba swing, bossa tempo
and nordestino nous.
John Armstrong's new compilation
Afrobeat Brasil features 14 blazing tracks
from 2011 to 2017 that nod towards
Nigeria, Ethiopia, Mali and beyond – with
feet firmly in Brazil.
For the first time outside Brazil, a careful
selection of modern Afrobeat- inspired
tunes from across several Brazilian
genres, taking in cutting-edge players
from Rio, São Paulo, Salvador, Porto
Alegre –and even Paris. No slavish Fela
Kuti copycats these, but rather Afrobeat
and other specific African tempos and
rhythms used as a blueprint, a buildingblock for new directions in Brazilian
music. Available from 30.06.2017
