Product Description

This record is the product of Gilles Peterson being a fan and a champion of Brasilian music in the clubs and on the radio for the last 25 years, culminating in him bringing together the country’s finest artists all on one album for the very first time. Recorded in Rio de Janeiro, they collaborated to create a collective called Sonzeira and an album that is Brasil Bam Bam Bam – a true expression of the real soul and authentic sound of Brasil, from its majestic heritage to its super-dynamic present. One of the world’s most respected DJs and Brasilian music aficionados, Gilles turned producer for this ambitious venture, setting up camp in Rio de Janeiro with young UK production trio Sam Shepherd (Floating Points); Dilip Harris and Rob Gallagher from 2 Banks of 4; and Kassin from Rio big band Orquestra Imperial. Together they set about recording all-new material with a stellar line-up of Brasilian talent, under the name Sonzeira. The result, Brasil Bam Bam Bam, is an inspirational portrait of a nation in sound. At its heart are mesmerising vocal performances from superstars young and old, including City of God actor and singer Seu Jorge, and the grande dame of samba, 76-year-old powerhouse Elza Soares.

By Bruce TOP 500 REVIEWER on 28 May 2014
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
So the DJ Gilles Peterson, known recently for his distinctive programmes on BBC Radio, has gathered a group of musicians together to celebrate his love of the music of Brasil. This group provides the backing tracks for singers who are famous names in Brasil - like Nana Vasconcelos, Seu Jorge, Marcos Valle, Elza Soares etc. -but who may not be so well-known over here.

Brasil is of course a massive country and the diversity of music reflects this - but we do get the distinctive batucada of the street samba style in Sambaio and Brasil Pandeiro - with percussion to the fore on many tracks - no shortage of cuica, surdo and all the instruments associated with Brasil. But several tracks are quiet and understated with gentle acoustic guitar or simple percussion patterns that offer space for the sometimes melancholic vocals. Of course many tracks are incredibly upbeat and joyous celebrations of life - but Peterson has opted for a mixture with light and shade, although it is the percussion heavy tracks that catch the ear and set your toes tapping.

The oddities are a very slow rendition of Aquarela Do Brasil, sung by Elza Soares, who only just about seems to get the words out and a version of the 80s Jazz Funk track "Southern Freeez". City of Saints is also slow, with minimal acoustic guitar background, but morphs into a bossa groove that is the kind of music people expect from Brasil. Most of this however sound fresh and bright - thanks to the energy of the percussionists and the enthusiasm of the vocalists - but the odd moment of shade just highlights this fact.

If anybody wants an introduction to the music of Brazil over the last few decades - this is it - highly recommended!
