Three years in the making, Maga Bo's Quilombo do Futuro melds heavy afro-brazilian rhythms with the massive bass of electronic dub and studio trickery of hip hop production. Caxambu on top of 808 kicks, alfaias punctuate dancehall ragga, swirling filtered echoes circle tamborim figures.
I've had the honor of working with some highly respected names in Brazilian music - BNegão and Marcelo Yuka who have been musical partners for many years, João Hermeto on percussion, Lucas Santtana, Biguli, Funkero, Gaspar from Z'Africa Brasil, Speed Freaks (RIP), Rosângela Macedo, As Meninas do Reconca Rio and some of the members of BaianaSystem as well as the heavyweight talents of US based singers Jahdan Blakkamoore and MC Zulu.
In addition to the main release, there is a hefty grip of great producers doing remixes - Stereotyp, Chancha Via Circuito, Process Rebel, Poirier, Copia Doble, Uproot Andy, Buguinha, Leo Justi, DJ Dolores, Dr. Das, Digitaldubs, Munchi, Batida.
QUILOMBO - an autonomous, fugitive settlement populated by ex-slaves and others in colonial Brazil. Slavery was abolished in Brazil in 1888, but many quilombos still exist (in the same locations) to this day. Viva Zumbi!
Many, many THANKS to Fernando Salis for his help and expertise in creating and editing this video.
