Product Description

CD Description

Thought Brazilian music began with bossa nova, morphed into tropicália and then finished with baile-funk? Well think again. "Oi! A Nova Música Brasileira!" is a sonic-snapshot of the most exciting new Brazilian music from artists influenced by the likes of Kraftwerk, Massive Attack, Talking Heads, Os Mutantes, Beastie Boys, Sly & Robbie, Sonic Youth, Ween, Robert Wyatt & Stereolab.

CD1 features 20 of the hottest artists from Brazil's new wave, tropicália, folk & indie scenes inc. the hyped Mini Box Lunar (currently drawing comparisons with the legendary Os Mutantes) & Do Amor ("Brazil's Vampire Weekend").

CD2 collects together 20 electronic, dancehall, baile-funk, dub, hip-hop, r `n' b & folktronica gems inc. an exclusive track from Céu, plus Catarina Dee Jah (Brazil's answer to M.I.A) & Gaby Amarantos ("the Amazonian Beyonce"). 


"A compilation you need to get hold of. 40 tracks all new... loads of stuff that is completely unknown to me. A brilliant Brazilian album"--Gilles Peterson, Compilation of the month, September 2010

(5/5 `Outstanding') "... a mostly rewarding survey of what cutting-edge Brazilian musicians are producing under the influence of everything from indie pop to left-field hip-hop. It's at times such as this that one wishes there wasn't the label "world" to put off potential listeners who would come to realise that British and American music is not the be all and end all when it comes to musical innovation."--The Independent on Sunday

"A welcome short cut to Brazil's prolific musical scene and its ever-changing hybrids, this well-packaged two-CD collection concentrates on indie rock and electronica… the appetite of young Brazil for experimentation and psychedelia is striking"--The Observer

"A joyously poppy pick 'n' mix of modern Brazilian sounds... this labour of love is presented with such passion and fun that it's easy to love..."--The Metro

"Oi! throws open the windows on to another world, at once readily recognisable, yet thrilling in it's differences... invigorating"--The Mail on Sunday

BBC Review

The ease of downloading has ignited a culture of cherry picking that has pretty much sounded the death knell of the dear old compilation album. But it may still have a role in cutting out the legwork to trumpet a new movement – whether real, perceived or simply well marketed.

Don’t let the "Oi!" distract you – this isn’t a collection of dodgy punk bands. It’s a bold, colourful, all-guns-blazing double CD set devoted to emergent contemporary music from the Brazilian underground. Or, in the words of the sleeve notes, artists who "combine both domestic and international influences to create their own uniquely Brazilian musical language with global appeal."

The logo is certainly eye-catching enough, the information contained within exhaustive and, while no 40-track collection is going to deliver complete satisfaction, there’s enough here to excite the senses and demonstrate that not everything seeping into Western consciousness from Brazil need be rehashed bossa nova, novelty lambada or slinky samba variations. Indeed, while many of the featured artists do draw on traditional styles with a mellow context tempering the more extreme electro dance forms, the mostly subtle blend of hip hop, dub, acid jazz and even avant-garde coating make for some fascinating tracks. Highlights include China’s Colocando Sal Nas Feridas, Zé Neguinho do Côco’s Recife D’água, and especially Catarina Dee Jah’s quirkily irresistible M.I.A.-meets-Althea and Donna groove on Kay Fora.

The omnipresent suspicion surrounding any kind of fusion of this nature is one concerning self-indulgence and gimmickry and there are indeed moments, particularly on the mostly experimental and electronica-orientated second disc – Curumin’s self-consciously energised Caixa Preta is one example – where alien influences sound artificial and awkwardly faux. Yet these are mostly overshadowed by some trailblazing highs, from much heralded Mini Box Lunar’s joyously infectious opening track Amarelasse, manguebeat supergroup Orquestra Contemporãnes de Olinda’s gently skanking Tá Falado and the startlingly intimate singing of Tulipa on the lovely Pedrinho.

For an album whose whole raison d’être is diversity and risk, it hangs together remarkably well. Even in its most extreme moments the roots glimmer through, conversely endorsing Brazil’s proud musical heritage while drastically re-arranging it.

What a truly fantastic album this is. I got a copy after hearing Radio 1 DJ Gilles Peterson rave about it on his show.

I've always loved Brazilian music but it's always hard to know where to start with such a vast country. This album has everything that is modern and fresh in Brazil - hiphop, electro, indie, samba. Its a great introduction to Brazil in 2010 and beyond.

A sure contender for album of the year. Already looking forward to Mais Um Gringo's next compilation.

Very diverse, highs and lows but many nuggets in the matrix of always interesting new music from the land of samba. I much preferred the most brazilian rooted stuff - the more western rock inspired tracks didn't interest me. Well worth getting for the rich rhythm soaked fruits in the mix and the orange water delights of those silky smooth toned female singers on some tracks. (Yeah, bit over the top, I know)

This is a wonderful compilation of all the different aspects of Brazilian Music. It is a vast country and what a great idea to have a map of the areas covered musically. This has to be one of the if not the best compilation of Brazilian music as it captures so many styles and variety of artists.A great piece of work that is a must for all Brazillian music fans. I just love it!
