Brazil 45, number 59:
A. Antonio Carlos & Jocafi - Simbarerê / AA. Antonio Carlos & Jocafi - Kabaluere
‘Simbarerê’ is a straight classic in our opinion – a chorus line that will stick with you all day. Psychedelic-latin-Brazilian-funk fusion, heavy on drums, bass, lead guitar and horns. Taken from the duo’s 1972 LP ‘Cada Segundo’.
‘Kabaluere’ is taken from the ‘Mudei de Ideia’ LP that we recently reissued, as sampled by Marcelo D2’s hit ‘Qual E!’. More psychedelic Brazilian funk, heavier on the drums, guitars and freaky backing vocals. The contrasting chorus line warms things up and brings the killer hook.
