The norwegian disco king gives us one hour of brazilian wax he digged in his recent trip to brazil
Track-by-track commentary by the selecter:
1. Jorge Ben & Toquinho - Carolina Carol Bela
This guy probably gave more to his country than the most decorated war veteran.
2. Painel De Control - Black Coco
I found this record at private collector in Rio, but rightfully so, he wanted way too much money for it, So I ended up buying this spanish version. Great track.
3. Jorge Ben - Dona Culpa
A boogie track that Jorge Ben made for a Brazilian soap opera in the 70s.
4. Neno Exporta Som - Deixa a Tristeza
This song might be the holy grail for diggers in Brazil. I was lucky enough to find it on a relatively cheap compilation! Original goes for around 1000 euro.
5. Djavan - Aquele um
Sounds like a track from a cartoon. Very unlike the rest of this Djavan album, which is much more slow pace.
6. Orquestra Som Livre - o trem
The theme of the brazilian Novela "Anjo Mao". Maybe just the most happy-go-lucky track i own.
7. Marcelo - Louco Por Você
This polished pop act from the 80s post-disco Carioca era made this one splendid boogie track.
8. Bill loko - Nem Lambo
My most cherished record, and probably the best track in the world. Bill Loko, from Cameroon.
9. Guy Lobé - Malinga
Another one of my Cameroonian favorites! Also a former friend of Loko. Past away a couple of years ago</3
10. Obina Shiok - Vida
Formed by sons of different African diplomats living in Brazil in the 80s. Just another boogie banger from Brazil.
11. Robson Jorge & Lincoln Olivetti- Aleliua
There is too much to be said about this track. It's a firework of a song.
12. Bebeto - Princesa Negra De Angola
An instant singalong banger from Bebeto.
13. Sete Quatro Sete - Rio De Janeiro
The last record I bought in Rio. A private collector in Botafogo wanted to show me one last record, before I ran out of time and money. I'm glad he did, because it might the most Iconic Carioca boogie track I've ever heard.
