4.0 out of 5 stars For the open-minded 29 April 2009
Format:Audio CD
The other reviewer clearly hadn't heard anything of this genre before he got the CD - Funk Carioca (pronounced Funky Kar-ee-orr-ka) might not be to everyone's taste, but you can't dismiss it as a valid kind of Latin (Brazilian) music just because it's not what you expect - i.e. the stereotypical samba beats and bossa nova lyrics.
First of all, 'Carioca' has nothing to do with Karaoke! 'Carioca' means 'from Rio de Janeiro', and Funk Carioca is unique as being a form of music originating in the Rio slums in the last decade. It's extremely popular all over Brazil now and this CD is one of the few cases of a compilation album marketed for abroad that actually represents what (young) Brazilians listen to.
Funk Carioca uses a lot of well-known sampling with Drum'n'Bass and HipHop rhythms with (usually live) MCs spitting over the top. It's played in nightclubs - not up-marked lounges and hotel lobbies. It's not too dissimilar to Drum and Bass (also popular in Brazil).
The important this is that this CD is a pretty good representation of Funk Carioca music. Buy it if you're open-minded about new, young, urban music. If you're just trying to look cultured by having a World CD in your collection or trying to get some stereotypical samba tunes into your living room or dinner parties - Don't.

5.0 out of 5 stars The raw and unmistakeable sound of Rio's slums 20 Aug 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This compilation provides some further exploration of the baile funk revolution of Rio's favela slum parties, also explored in the other compilations such as the two Rio Baile Funk: Favela Booty Beats and Sublime Frequencies release Probidao C.V. among many others. This sound is unlike any other ghetto music style happening in the tropical regions. Aggressive and adrenaline fuelled, this raw and ecstatic stuff.
If like me you are addicted to the bombastic sound of baile funk and have not yet heard this album then it is not going to disappoint. Some of the tracks may have already appeared on a few western compilations but there is also plenty of tracks here that I haven't found anywhere else that make it well worth buying.
I only got the digital download (which I now regret) so I cannot comment on the sleeve notes, but musically it can't be faulted and will always get any party heaving!

5.0 out of 5 stars M.I.A./Diplo fans should pick this up 15 Jan 2006
By Keri B - Published on
Format:Audio CD bad thing: After you listen to these outrageously raw beats from the streets of Brazil, "Arular" by M.I.A. will not sound as original as it did before. But, oh well, every one has their influences. This "Baile funk" stuff is awesome. Or "Rio Funk", either way, I beleive the word "favela" describes the parties where this type of music is played in Brazil.

By the way, in the world could a reviewer think all these songs sound the same? This stuff is all over the place. Every minute you're engaged and dancin it up in your car as the dj mixes up an entire UNIVERSE of beats. OKAY, I do confess, its a bit noisy and crazy. But its street music. I think it adds to the charm. The sound is similar to taking one step forward, and then two steps back... you wind up in a different place than you had expected. Though you can here that technology is lacking, it makes this mix all the more charming. The upbeat feel to this album is a spicey treat, and the Do-It-Yourself feel of old school electro is definitely present. There's Afrika Bambaata in the background in one track for sure.

This is street music, raw and real. Its got a DIY feel to it, but that is a good thing. Feels like you're there while djs are mixing it up all dirty in order to keep the place moving. Plenty of vocals (in Portegeuse?) thrown in to the layers of booty shaking rhythms keeps the feel ROWDY. And I mean rowdy... the MCs are screaming things in some other language. But after listening to all that Reggaeton on the radio, I like it.

Mind you, this isn't normal "electronica". Its definitely "urban" music. And sounds a bit 80s/90s. But, as I said before, its all part of its charm.

If you have heard of Diplo (who was on tour with M.I.A. when she first blew up), his Florida album features a track that is pure "Baile Funk"/"Rio Funk"/"Favela Beats": Diplo Rhythm feat. Sandra Melody, Vybz Cartel & Pantera Os Danadinho. Its an awesome track. Now I know where his influences are... RIGHT HERE!

I loved this album. Just listening to it makes me wanna dance all night. It's awesome! Liricks are a little obsene but the sound is really catchy. My favorite performer is Bonde do Tigrão!!

5.0 out of 5 stars A blast for the booty from Brazil 4 April 2006
By Daniel Stout - Published on
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This music is fun! The music is based on big beat Miami Bass with lyrics shouted in Portuguese. Writing about it, it sounds like it would be an awful mish mash of stuff, but this music is great. It'll get the body moving--this is great party music or for rolling down the street. There's another compilation called "Rio Baile Funk" that also has a lot of this type of music. Both CDs have a few tracks that are on both, but overall both CDs cover slightly different territory in this original style of music from Brazil.
3.0 out of 5 stars samba? 9 April 2012
By Yazmin Montez - Published on
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This CD is not at all what I expected. The songs are covers. I guess I just expected more. Great CD if you're unfamiliar with the once popular songs. Plus all the songs sound exactly the same. Its like one long record.
4.0 out of 5 stars Zulu Nation gone south. 21 Feb 2008
By John Whitworth - Published on
Format:Audio CD
I'm neither 16 nor Brazilian but if I was I'd be listening to this all the time, I'm sure it sounds great through a massive system, however, it does sound a lot like Africa Bambaataa's Planet Rock and variations there of.
