    south of the border music

    Discussion started by ubejinxed - Jan 14, 2004

    the US border that is.

    so music from central and south america i guess.

    i'm sure you are all aware of my somewhat sick obsession with all things brazilian, much like LENS' asian girl thing. unfortunately this fixation is not only for that lovely country but also all things south of the border, especially the music. the following are things i've found and like, i'm not sure about the dates on them though.

    sooo to start this off
    some brazilian music i've enjoyed

    new stuff reggae inspired - O rappa, gabriel o pensador, cidade negra

    samba related - bezerra da silva, daniella mercury, carlinhos brown, u can look up 'escolas de samba' to get the super drum heavy carnaval samba music, , zeca pagodinho, beth carvalho, codel do fogo encantado, ivete sangalo

    Axe music/pogode (most brazilians i've talked to think this stuff is super retarded but i like it, it means backyard music) - Banda Eva, Olodum, E O tchan, Timbalada, artepopular, revelacao

    MPB(musica popular brasil) - Caetano Veloso, Gilberto Gil, Elis Regina (mother of MPB), Tom Jobim. excellent stufe - JORGE BEN (love this it's kind old tho), marisa monte (love her too), skank (new), jorge vercilo, bahia black (experimental sound)

    bossa nova - bebel gilberto, gal costa, airto moeira

    other cool stuff that i don't know where it fits- cassia eller, ze ramalho (classic), racionais MCs (brazilian rap), olodum (good drums)
    electronicish - Zuco 103, soulstice


    i've forgotten a lot but they're on different disks i can't reference right now.

    anyways i'd love to hear more recommendations or whatever.

    hmmmm....
    susana baca is peruvian and she's one of my favorite singers.

    Antonio Carlos Jobim is a composer with some good brazillian stuff. I also like Paulinho Moska and Maria Creuza.

    whereas Cuba is concerned, I really like Compay Segundo.

    I have so little pep right now otherwise i'd prob list more.

    HAHAHAHAHAHAHA


    Word on the suggestions Ube, I've already got my Limewire on the prowl...

    Lately I've been getting into OLD caribbean (jíbaro) music, mainly bomba, plena, salsa gorda and salsa vieja, stuff that features "soneros", which are basically salsa singers who freestyle their shit. Took a roadtrip last week around Puerto Rico and all we had to listen to was this stuff, which was perfect to connect us with the environment. So with that said, if you like classic latin sounds with very direct and definite african influences,

    -Ray Barreto
    -Ismael Rivera
    -Cortijo y su Conjunto (Cortijo and I. Rivera often played together)
    -Papo Lucca (deadly piano master) y la Sonora Ponceña
    -Andy Montañez
    -Paquito Guzmán
    -Raphy Leavitt
    -Andrés Jiménez (the last two are slower paced, guitar and cuatro driven musicians; trobadours)


    We also listened to a lot of latin jazz, really fucking excellent stuff that I didn't get the names of, but as soon as I get a hold of my friend I will post. Buuuuuuut, I do have to mention one artist and one song, because we must've listened to it no less than 20 times during the trip in sheer amazment at the man's skills:


    Endel Dueño, "El Rey del Timbal"


    This song by Endel Dueño, a murderous percussionist known as "The Enciclopedia of the Timbal", is a tribute to the late Tito Puente (the real Rey del Timbal) and will make you shit your pants 1200 times in a row because he plays those things like a fucking robot from Jupiter. Listen to it stoned and you will die.

    More later.
