“The music is as impatient and curious as the country's best composers... a miraculous 43-song collection” LOS ANGELES TIMES

“A stellar 43-song compilation” NPR MUSIC

++++

From Afro-punk, to Bahian-funk via samba-crunk, ‘rolê: new sounds of Brazil’, is a 43 track compilation that shows the incredible diversity of Brazilian music now.

‘Rolê’ translates as ‘let’s roll’ in Braziian Portuguese and Mais Um Discos’ label head Lewis Robinson rolled around ten Brazilian states including Rio de Janeiro, Bahia, Amazonas, Rio Grande do Sul, São Paulo, Minas Gerais, Brasília, Pernambuco, Pará and Santa Catarina to pull together these 43 tracks.

Disc Um shows 22 very different artists defining their own styles and defying any stereotypes of Brazilian music. From the dub-tronics of the innovative Lucas Santtana to the angry indie-rock of Apanhador Só, Madame Rrose Selavy’s ‘bossa-punk’, Graveola’s`carnival-cannibalism` and the funky-frevo of Juliana Perdigão.

Disc Dois heads into the club - showcasing the new wave of post baile-funk Brazilian dance music. The cutting edge axé bass beats of Som Peba, tecnho-lamabda of Strobo and electro-treme of Gang Do Eletro. A nod to the old school comes from Lia Sophia who offers up a slinky slice of nova-brega, Zulumbi with their rousing hip-hop funk, Dona Onete who introduces us to the sound of carimbo-chamegado, Meta Meta join by Tony Allen for some afro-punk-beat and Bixiga 70 who drop a heavyweight slice of guitarrada-latin-funk.
