Quilombo do Futuro

Quilombo do Futuro by Maga Bo
Released: May 2012
Label: Post World Industries
Like a musical mystery tour of Brazil, Quilombo do Futuro dances across capoeira, baile funk, samba, hip-hop, even forro -- the sounds of Brazil past and present, in other words, played by musicians who have mastered these traditions and styles. Where the futuro comes in is that each of these styles has been sutured to blazing-hot electronic dance beats by Maga Bo, the American DJ behind this fascinating project. Berimbau twangs are bolstered by global bass, dancehall riddims saunter around a samba shuffle, and the whole thing feels like a globe-trotting conga line we want to join. Now.
