Played with tzouras (small bouzouki) trombone and acoustic guitar and using electronics, effects and loop pedals to venture into a world that is refreshing and exciting.

new digital release on Rebel Up Records: Satanique Samba Trio – Forrível, Halloween / Dia das Bruxas special mini album

Satanique Samba Trio is back with another mini-album, made during this everlasting confinement.

F O R R Í V E L – Halloweeen / Dia das Bruxas special, get it on our Bandcamp.

After 10 albums dedicated to the aesthetical disassembling of Brazilian music’s most recurrent clichés, Satanique Samba Trio aims its ongoing research at a new formula for musical fuckery: the artificial combination between forró, the popular Brazilian groovy rhythm and horror synth, the not-so-popular music genre extracted from old keyboard-ridden horror film scores.

Think of what would happen if the most syncopated of all Brazilian folk rhythms incorporated a bunch of obsolete-but-nowadays-trendy giallo soundtrack tropes.
Mathematically speaking, forró + horror synth = forrór synth. And that is where Forrível is coming from.

Well, enough of homework. It’s Halloween once again (or Dia das Bruxas – Witches Day, as it’s called in Brazil) – and it’s raining in Brazil. As we are slowly descending into a renewed global lockdown, here some soundtrack sounds for these dark times.
