[Music] Erlon Chaves – Procura​-​se Uma Virgem OST


Procura-se Uma Virgem turned out to be a very pleasant slab of easy/cheesy/sleazy listening from soundtrack composer Erlon Chaves, who should have been working in Europe, where is mellow style would have been perfect for directors like Jess Franco and Mario Bava.

[Music] Sean Khan, Hermeto Pascoal – Palmares Fantasy featuring Hermeto Pascoal


Many thanks to Andrew Jervis over at Bandcamp Weekly for not only sharing Sean Khan’s work but for a stellar interview with a young man who will be seen as one of the UK’s leading lights of new jazz.

[Music] Joyce Moreno – Visions Of Dawn

I can’t think of a Brazilian singer I adore more than Joyce Moreno, and that’s saying quite a bit considering the legendary talent that has come out of the country.

Still, she is in top form in this album working with percussionist Naná Vasconcelos and Mauricio Maestro on vocals.

Though recorded in 1976, this release, as great as it is, didn’t see a proper release until 2009.

[Music] Camarão – The imaginary Soundtrack to a Brazilian Western Movie

Analog Africa’s clutches are reaching out farther and wider with this release by Brazilian legend Camarão. It’s a reissue of work he did in around 1960 and is a lively mix of ethnic music, cha-cha, accordion music and something you would hear in a very hazy, psychedelic Spaghetti Western.

Expect this release to ship out starting on February 20, 2018. It’s been well worth the wait!
