Banda Black Rio - Super Nova Samba Funk LP

Far Out

Sold out.

Color vinyl. Super Nova Samba Funk, the comeback album from Banda Black Rio, featuring Brazilian heavyweights Seu Jorge, Marcio Local, Elza Soares, Cesar Camargo Mariano, and more. Originally released in 2011, this edition features two tracks from the project that were never released on vinyl, "Irerê (feat. Gilberto Gil)" and "Aos Pés Do Redentor (feat. Caetano Veloso)". William Magalhães formed Banda Black Rio as a modern-day incarnation of his father Oberdan's original '70s Brazilian samba soul and funk outfit. Reigniting the Black Rio flame, Magalhaes brought together Brazilian icons Seu Jorge, Marcio Local, and Elza Soares feature alongside bossa pioneers Caetano Veloso and Gilberto Gil, as well as Flame Killer and GOD PT3 from the famed NYC Mobb Deep crew for the project. With a renaissance in Brazil's black music culture led by a new generation of soul, funk, and hip-hop artists BBR finally returned with a brand new formation for comeback album Rebirth in 2000, before launching their most ambitious project to date with 2011's Super Nova Samba Funk -- the group's sixth studio album produced and led by William Magalhães.
