Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

This collection focuses on the relationship between Jamaican reggae and Brazilian music--particularly the accordion-driven forró style popular in Brazil's Northeastern states. Lazzo's "Sim/Nao" is notable for its stylistic references to Booker T. and Toots & the Maytals, while Pepeu Gomes's "Sexy Yemanja" makes unusual use of a pedal steel guitar. (Think New Riders of the Purple Sage meet King Sunny Ade in a government yard in Trenchtown.) Other forró-based artists include Ale Muniz, Rita Ribeiro, Saldanha Rolim and Chico César, while DiDa Banda Feminina, Ivete Sangalo and Gal Costa represent Bahia, the musical heart of Afro-Brazilian culture. Most of the tracks on Festa Brasil are relatively unexceptional in themselves. But, like its Putumayo predecessor, Brasileiro, it adds up to a terrific party album. --Rick Mitchell

Not all accordion music consists of oompa band polkas&sappy French love songs,or anything by Weird Al Yankovic.In Brazil,the accordion is part of forro music from the Northeast,in Bahia,a region with a deep African heritage.

"Festa Brasil" is one of Putumayo's great Brazilian compilations;unfortunately,it is out of print.

Highlights-

1)Sim/Nao-The smoky-voiced Lazzo sings a reggae version of a Caetano Veloso song.Delightful&frothy,it's joyful party music.

2)Monsieur Samba-Former model Ivette Sangalo outdoes Natalie Imbruglia&Kylie Minogue as a singer.Her exuberant song mixes Portuguese with French.I hope to get her live concert MTV CD.

3)Sexy Yemanaja-Slide guitar makes this song sound almost country.It's a joyful invocation of Yemanaja,the mermaid goddess of the waters in the Afro-Brazilian religion umbanda.

4)Chiclete com Banana-Gal Costa delightfully mocks the Americanization of Brazilian music.Great song.Gal Costa is gifted.One wonders what she'd think of the rap versions of Sergio Mendes' songs&his recent collaboration with Justin Timberlake...

5)Severina Xique-Xique-A funny song about a younger man wooing an older woman for her money.

6)Cocada-The great Rita Ribeiro sings a delightful song about candy.Definitely superior to Natalie Merchant's "Ice Cream." or the the "Honey,honey,sugar,sugar" song by the Archies.

7)Filhos do Tempo-A deeply rhythmic song by a feminist band that draws on its African heritage.Powerful samba-reggae.

8)Feira de Mangaio-Descriptive song about a Brazilian marketplace.Tragically,Agepe passed away in 1995.He had immense talent.

9)Ie Mama-Another rhythmic reggae song.

I have listened to lots of Brazilian music (and am half Brazilian!) and this is easily one of my favorite CDs. It features NorthEastern Brazilian rhythms in a modern style, creating crisp, lively music that is hard to sit still for. I highly recommend this CD.

Fo my taste, the song choices are a bit too far from the Salvador and Rio sounds. Objectively, it's probably really good.
