Amplificador documents the diverse music blossoming from Brazil’s vivacious musical undergrounds.
This compilation draws together components of Novíssima Música Brasileira (brand new Brazilian music), ranging from afro-grooves to rock, to modern samba and MPB (Brazilian pop music).
The music reaches back across Brazil’s rich musical and cultural traditions. But it also shows the influences of other movements from around the globe, including African music and in particular Afrobeats. Artists such as Abayomy Afrobeat Orchestra from Rio bring with them sounds and rhythms of Candomblé. Zebrabeat Afro-Amazônia Orquestra draw upon traditional instruments such as carimbos and fuse them with Afrobeats to create a unique regional hybrid.
Amplificador is scheduled for release on the 13th July 2015. You can purchase it through Far Out Recordings store.
