VA – Black Rio 2

Black Rio 2


DJ Cliffy is back 7 years later to compile the 2nd volume of his brilliant Black Rio series (that uncovers music from the black movement in a country that was under a military dictatorship). I am pretty sure censorship laws would have been strict in Brazil during the 1970s, but it certainly didn’t stop many musicians from busting out like their US contemporaries, creating their own brew of funk/soul/samba. Due to the rarity of the music, Strut/K7 have even noted on the sleave that some of the tracks are not licensed and to contact them if you have any information about the artists. Grande compilação!!
