Really enjoyed this concert. I never understand it when people moan about artists doing a show that’s just like the album. I’m always a bit annoyed when it’s not. Criolo nailed it at the Circo Voador.
If you’d given me a piece of paper as a kid and told me to write down my ideal perfect most amazing job would be, I’d probably have said something to do with documentaries, and Gilles Peterson, and Galliano, and Brazilian music, and Rio. Luckily, I haven’t changed much since I was a kid, and last year, the planets aligned, and gave me exactly what I’ve always wanted.
For the last few months, my mate Ben Holman and I have been working on a documentary involving several of my favourite people in the world. Gilles Peterson, Rob Galliano, Ed Motta, Elza Soares, Marcos Valle, Wilson Das Neves, Seu momma flipping Jorge!!!!! It’s literally the most fun I’ve ever had. Mad props to BOSH and Mother for letting me do what I Love and making it all happen
There’s an hour long documentary on the way, but here’s a little teaser.
Now go and buy the album
This made me very happy this morning
best since the classic
Delightful hip hop out of Brazil via Edi Rock of Racionais MCs fame. Nice to see a good collabo with Seu Jorge, and some nice sampling of Tim Maia below. Off to listen to the rest of the album now.
When I saw this i nearly peed my pants. Two of my favourite people ever. Then I watched it. What a disappointment. Bummer. What were they thinking. This is a load of ropey old cock.
And just so you know how awesome both of these artists can be, here are some worth watching:
And one from the best concert I’ve ever been to in my life:
