Information

This is our follow up to “Tropicalia: A Revolution in Sound” and takes up exactly where the first volume took off mixing up styles and featuring killer Brazilian tunes all influenced by American and British underground rock music from the early 70s. It is 100% essential music! Brazil 70 follows Brazilian music in the aftermath of Tropicalia as the country’s dictatorship entered its most oppressive phase. Musicians and artists from the Tropicalia period of the late-60s such as Gilberto Gil, Caetano Veloso, Tom Ze, Rita Lee (Os Mutantes lead-singer) and Gal Costa entered a new phase mixing rock, funk, samba and soul alongside a wealth of like-minded new artists such as Novos Baianos, Raul Seixas, Nelson Angelo and Joyce and more. With the constant threat of imprisonment, artists nevertheless managed to produce radical music that, like Tropicalia before it, managed to deal with questions of identity, sexuality and society in a revolutionary manner. Brazil 70 chronicles this period in style with extensive sleeve-notes, exclusive photography and killer tunes! If you got the first Tropicalia – A Brazilian Revolution In Sound then you need this! If you didn’t then you still do. Essential! “Brazil 70 unearths a fascinating refusenik musical world of artists trying to bend inflexible rules, prepared to run the risk of prison and torture in the process. There’s a lot of bravery on display during Brazil 70, but you can admire someone’s bravery without necessarily wanting to hear them sing. Happily, Brazil 70’s strength lies less in the stories it tells than the music it contains, which for the most part would sound fantastic regardless of the circumstances in which it was made. Gal Costa’s horn-laden funk, the romantic swoon of Nelson Angelo and Joyce’s two tracks, the nagging, cyclical melody of Jaime Alem and Nair de Candia’s ‘Passara’: this is music to lose yourself in, which was presumably the point for the people who made it and bought it first time around. It may have been the cure for the world’s biggest hangover, but it turns out to have tasted surprisingly sweet.” GUARDIAN (CD of the Week) "Despite lasting little more than a year, Brazil's Tropicalia movement influenced a whole new generation of artists, most of whom are included on this compilation. Fusing folk, rock, funk and psychedelia and just about anything else with countercultural philosophy and radical opposition to the oppressive dictatorship then governing the country, these songs are bold both in terms of form and content. A truly inspiring collection." UNCUT
