Kafundó Vol. 6: Afrobeat Brazil

Afrobeat is enjoying a solid surge of support and reincarnation amongst the underground scene in Brazil. Virtually all of the state’s capital cities have a band (or 3!) championing the afrobeat movement. This compilation shows how musicians from diverse corners of the contemporary Brazilian music scene are being inspired to infuse elements of this sound into their work.

The artists range from the non-stop touring machine based in São Paulo, Bixiga 70, to the pioneer afrobeat group, Abayomy jn Rio de Janeiro, to fellow carioca and frequent collaborator, BNegão, who here also participates on a track from legendary singer Tonho Crocco. To Belo Horizonte’s Iconili to Salvador’s Ifá. A cross section of the current afrobeat scene in Brazil today – dive in!
