RhoDeo 1717 Roots

Hello, ever since February 2016 the roots postings have come from Brazil, the Olympics have come and gone but Rho-Xs have stayed on the ball but after next weeks final post it's time to move on and so it's time to leave the country with some great beats..

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.

Favela is the Brazilian equivalent of the Jamaican shantytown or the American ghetto, and from it springs an incredible variety of sounds -- samba, funk, hip-hop, easy listening and even drum'n'bass during the late '90s and early 2000s. Although the Favela Chic club is an ocean away (in Paris), it's become a focal point of the favela sound. Favela Chic Postonove, re-creates a night at the club by packing in two dozen tracks that may result in a case of whiplash if listeners attempt to chart the styles on display...N'Joy

Among the many hidden treasures of Paris is Favela Chic, a little gem of a restaurant and club tucked into a side street off Faubourg-du-Temple. Finding the illuminated top hat hovering above a small alleyway – the bar’s only exterior signage – is the hardest part, but once patrons arrive, they’ll be swept into the eclectic atmosphere of a Brazilian carnival.

Pushing aside the palm fronds reveals a scattering of picnic tables in the long and colorful rectangular room that serves as a restaurant. Guests should show up early if they want to peruse the extensive menu and try some of the best Brazilian food in Paris – the kitchen closes at 11pm when the restaurant and back bar transform into a nightclub, and there’s no guarantee that the other patrons will wait for diners to finish before they start dancing on the tables.

Favela Chic is loud, hot, and sweaty and regularly filled with a young, international party crowd. The atmosphere is feverish, the dance floor packed, and people are clearly in the mood to let loose and show off their seductive dance moves to the rhythmic beat of Brazilian and Latin music. It would be hard to find a club more dynamic and energetic than Favela Chic, so for anyone who’s looking for a quiet night out – this ain’t it!

Favela is the Brazilian equivalent of the Jamaican shantytown or the American ghetto, and from it springs an incredible variety of sounds -- samba, funk, hip-hop, easy listening and even drum'n'bass during the late '90s and early 2000s. Although the Favela Chic club is an ocean away (in Paris), it's become a focal point of the favela sound. Favela Chic Postonove, the first volume in a series of mixes, re-creates a night at the club by packing in two dozen tracks that may result in a case of whiplash if listeners attempt to chart the styles on display (in that sense, favela has no specific "sound" to speak of, only an energy and specific quality of production that ties its tracks together). Here, Walter Wanderley's bustling and breezy "Batucada" gives way to an easy listening funk singalong ("Eu Também Quero Mócoto") from long-time Brazilian bandleader Erlon Chaves. Also given ample space is baile funk, an urban dance music heavily reliant on sample-laden party rap; highlights come from Batutinha DJ and Bonde de Gorila. But the energy displayed by these new-school artists is trumped by the artist with a longer resume than anyone -- Jorge Ben, whose contribution is the totally bonkers "Cuidado Com o Bulldog," which cycles between acoustic pop and heavy-riffing hard rock. (Most bizarre of all, however, has to be a cover of "Sixteen Tons" by Funk Como le Gusta.)

The second volume of tunes assembled by and for the painfully hip Paris nightspot Favela Chic is a surprising and far-reaching smorgasbord of Brazilian grooves both old and new. There's a superb mix of obscure samba cuts from the 1970s and latter-day material from the Trama label -- the common thread is the sublimely funky energy of all the songs, which goes well beyond the norms of most Brazilian music into a cross-cultural stratosphere that's pretty much all its own. If this set is even remotely representative of a typical evening at Favela Chic, fly to Paris posthaste, bribe the bouncer, and glide past the velvet rope. Highlights include "Favela" by Z'Africa Brasil, "Nao Pode" by Tony Bizarro, "Eu Bebo Sim" by Elizete Cardoso, and "Mamae Natureza" by Rita Lee.

The third volume in a breathtaking series that charts Brazilian club culture -- from the samba/bossa nova of the '60s through the party hip-hop of the 2000s -- has a similar arc to previous volumes: '70s and '80s singers and/or songwriters dominate the first half, while hip-hop and sampladelic acts take over the latter half. If the inclusions aren't as catchy and heart-stopping as on previous rounds, all of them are still well worth hearing. Highlights include Luciano Perrone's deft "Samba Vocalizado (The Vocal Samba)" (to hear it is to understand), Seu Jorge's whimsical, ukulele-led "Tive Razão," and Os Diagonais making like a latter-day Mutantes fronting James Brown's band on "Nao Vou Chorar."

One of the hippest restaurant/clubs in Europe right now is Favela Chic, which has locations in both London and Paris, and has been slowly building a reputation for its DJs putting together some of the finest compilations of Brazilian music available today. Postonove 4, the latest in the series, stays true to its predecessors’ style in that it rotates between traditional players such as Os Mutantes and Elza Soares while throwing in many new and obscure samba cuts that joyously capture the consistent progression of traditional samba forms. With over a million revellers set to take to the streets of Rio this month in the annual Carnival celebrations, opening track "La Vem Salgueiro” fittingly captures the excitement with traditional samba guitars strummed over whistles and bongos that like all of the cuts, puts a groove in your step but never makes you feel awkward. As with previous compilations, the Postonove series is not content to just stick with one genre and Marcelinho da Lua and Voltair offer slices of Brazilian hip-hop and its famed drum & bass scene on "Tranquilo” and "A Hora do Brazil.”
