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.
busy times at Rebel Up!, as one of our crew members will be representing Rebel Up! at the Womex world music expo in Cardiff and playing some sets in Bristol. But thankfully Rebel Up! Leblanc is there to cover and take over Rebel Up! duties.
This wednesday evening 23rd it’s time for another KK World evening at the KultuurKaffee. Afro-Canadian/Haïtian singer Spaïcy will come and give her soul jazz and african creole spheres. Free in, doors open from 20:00. Check all the info here.
and the day after on thursday evening our good friends of Orchestre du Mont-Plaisant will be playing at the Bonnefooi. Expect some great oriental soundtracks, ethiopian psychedelic funk and Italian giallo cinema funk. Check Bonnefooi’s FB event for info. Free in as usual, so all to win 🙂
