Afropop Exclusive Mix: Brazilian Underground, Vol. Two
The first Brazilian Underground mix was one of our favorites in the Afropop Exclusive Mix Series, so we asked Rio-based journalist Marcelo Monteiro of Amplificador (who recently released an excellent new compilation on Far Out Recordings) if he could make us one more. We are very excited to once again present some incredible new songs from the new generation of Brazil. This time around, most of the tracks on the mix are either from brand-new albums or singles released in the past few months. The styles included here range from Afro-Brazilian to MPB to psych rock. Monteiro has included some great new material by Metá Metá and Bixiga 70, two inventive African-inspired acts from São Paulo, along with a new track by Pernambucan mangue veteran Siba. But there are also plenty of gems by lesser-known acts included here. Enjoy! Track List: 1. Ava Rocha - Hermética 2. Metá Metá - Atotô 3. Ive Seixas - Praia no Inverno 4. Mohandas - Your Eyes 5.
