Hello, we'll be staying in Brazil until the Olympics there's plenty of time to explore the it's music scene. The music of Brazil encompasses various regional music styles influenced by African, European and Amerindian forms. After 500 years of history, Brazilian music developed some unique and original styles such as samba, bossa nova, MPB, sertanejo, pagode, tropicalia, choro, maracatu, embolada (coco de repente), mangue bit, funk carioca (in Brazil simply known as Funk), frevo, forró, axé, brega, lambada, and Brazilian versions of foreign musical genres, such as Brazilian rock and rap.


Today, a Brazilian musical group from Rio de Janeiro that was formed in 1976.The instrumental band, dissolved in 1980,  they produced excellent work of electric samba-funk fusion, with hot brass arrangements, a great percussive section, and excellent solos.  It has a repertoire based on funk but also including samba, jazz and Brazilian rhythms.... .....N'Joy

Banda Black Rio had its start in 1976, after the split of two other bands: Impacto 8 and Dom Salvador & Abolição. Oberdan Magalhães, who played with many famous artists in Brazil including Milton Nascimento and Gal Costa, formed the band with Cristóvão Bastos, Luiz Carlos Batera, Jamil Joanes, Cláudio Stevenson and Barrosinho. Mixing R&B, Jazz and Samba Elements, Banda Black Rio was one of the first to undertake the fusion of Essential Brazilian Music with International Black Music. As a part of the movement called "Black Rio", they played in a lot of suburban clubs in Rio de Janeiro, with famous artists like Sandra de Sá, who was an unknown singer at that time. The band achieved success with the song "Maria Fumaça", which was included in the soundtrack of a Brazilian soap-opera called "Locomotivas". In 1984, Oberdan died in a car accident, but the other members continued the band, setting gigs until 1985. In 1999, the son of Oberdan, William Magalhães, reformed the band with new members.; so they contacted Oberdan Magalhães, a renowned saxophonist, that accepted the challenge together with the Trumpet player Barrosinho, Keyboard and Arranjments Cristovao Bastos, Guitars and Arranjments Claudio Stevenson, Bass Jamil Joanes, Trombone Lucio Silva and formed Banda Black Rio. .

The original band recorded three albums: the instrumental Maria Fumaça (1977), Gafieira Universal (1978) and Saci Pererê (1980). They were also invited to take part in other artists' albums, such as Luiz Melodia, Raul Seixas, Sandra de Sa, Emilio Santiago, Alcione, Carlos Dafe, and recorded a live album with Caetano Veloso entitled Bicho Baile Show and Global Brazilians in 1985.

Another work from the greatest Brazilian Funk/Soul band of the 70’s, Banda Black Rio. This is Saci Perere, the second album, maybe the best out of three. Cassiano, from Os Diagonais, does the arrangements for some tracks. This album remembers the style of Ed Motta, with the soul vocals in front of everything. This is a fabulous soul funk rare gem...... Think Earth Wind and Fire with a Latin twist. Super sonics as well.

Slick, highly produced latin funk. According to journalist and composer Julio Barroso, the Banda Black Rio was the cannibalistic fusion of sweaty funk spirit suburb with electricity of bronzed bodies of the southern zone - Explosion signs, swing. - Rio 40 Graus Trendy and poetic, Julio Barroso captured the sonorous language of the balls that were rolling in the suburbs of the state capital, represented here in the sextet's music. it can be said that few were able to go so far in such a short time, in the search for hybridization of the arrays of samba with funk, soul and jazz, as the Black Rio were. Many years later, in the 90s, English DJs discovered (or rediscovered) the sound of the Black Rio. Their LPs were worth hundreds of dollars on the international market, which resulted in reissues pirates on vinyl, and numerous compilations released worldwide.

"This is a sound made in Brazil. With all Brazilian members. But the purpose is to show the young African music, with all its nuances that characterize the origins of the black continent's music. On this album we released many things curious. from the rhythmic design, which was based on the camel, which falls under the division 4/4, the same line of ya ya ya and Soul music, which was given the name of Oga, this, because in Lagos, capital of Nigeria, is an intimate treatment of friends. There, the man feels good when compared to a OGA (camel). Purposefully and proudly launched this new and different LP for export, not only dedicated to discófilos around the world, as well as the party lovers, evenings in night clubs, and even for those who are loving, because on both sides there are no gaps. it's crazy and contagious rhythm. "

This is how, in 1971, Embaixador and Maestro João Negrão described the record on his back cover. These words did not aged one bit. The production quality and experimentation on the Tribo Massàhi recording is an exponential leap forward. Estrelando Embaixador is candomblé-inspired psychedelic party music, taking the Afro-Brazlian sound into some wild territory. It's a heady mix of tropicalismo, chimed guitar, conversational chatter, studio fuckery, and heavy percussion with a female chorus. The songs blend together so that each side of the record runs as a continual piece. Side A is called "Timolô, Timodê;" Side B "Lido's Square." Trippy...
