Brazil 45, number 39:
A. Claudia - Macumba / AA. Claudia - Baoba
Our leading lady of the series, Claudia, is back once again, this time with double A side.
‘Macumba’ is taken from one of her several self-titled LP’s, the one in question released in 1970 on Premier, Brazil. Sought after in its original form. Psychedelic, orchestral, MPB, exotica with hints of Bollywood! Horns strings and spaced out male vocals back Claudia’s amazing lead. Highly unique.
‘Baoba’ is taken from Claudia’s all killer no filler Jesus Cristo LP, from Odeon released in 1971. Heavy on the strings and tough on the funk drums, before it breaks into a vocal jazz section, then back into the groove. Reminiscent of Swedish folk-funk singer Doris, whose album we reissued in the past.
