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.

Kaito Winse comes from a Burkina Faso griot music family. From an early age he was formed in the traditions of his family in the village of Lankoué, Sourou region in the north of Burkina Faso.
As a modern jeli or griot, Kaito is the message bearer for the traditions of Burkina Faso. His solo debut album “Kaladounia” ( ‘Here the world’ / ‘ici le monde’), takes its impetus from the desire to perpetuate these traditions. The tama drum, the toutlé and the Fulani flutes and the traditional mouth bow accompany the songs addressed to Ancestors and newborns, and appeal to the force of planet earth. Traditional and spiritual techniques are renewed and unveiled on this album.
“Kaladounia” also takes its inspiration from the richness of human values and the need to communicate with nature. His mouth bow leads the voice and carries uplifting messages. His voice rises in in the local Burkinabé languages of Mooré, Samo and a little bit of French and pays homage to women, to their courage, to love and to life. The songs reveal the mastery of traditional musical techniques and rhythms, a spirituality rooted in ancestral values of men and nature, and a powerful and striking voice you won’t forget. This is the world, this is the place to do good things while you are here.
Released on Rebel Up Records, supported by NGHE Mediatheque, Enthusiast Music and Muziekpublique.
Tomorrow saturday 03.10 Kaito Winse will play an album release show at Muziekpublique theatre with Malick Pathé Sow. For info and tickets check here.
