Bossa Mundo... When Brazil Meets the World

     
 

There's world music, and there's world music. We're talking music of the spheres, what you'd hear if you cracked open the globe and put your ear to it.

Overview

There's world music, and there's world music. We're talking music of the spheres, what you'd hear if you cracked open the globe and put your ear to it. That's BOSSA MUNDO, a collection of up-to-the minute Brazilian-flavored dance sounds. In Tokyo, London, Paris, Berlin, and, of course, Brazil, DJs and musicians have been crafting a smooth hybrid of jazz, Brazilian rhythm, and house beats that's darn near ubiquitous. It's already yielded one hit, the sublime "Outro Lugar," Salomé da Bahia and Bob Sinclar's Stevie Wonder-inspired floor-filler that's worth the price of admission. Along the way are ambient delights from Japanese jazzer Yasushi Ide (remixed by Masters at Work), Brazilian melodies from the Paris-based duo Tom and Joyce (remixed by New York DJ don François Kevorkian), Berlin's Jazzanova, and Londoner Modaji. The cuts flow seamlessly, washing over like successive waves of big-bottomed bossa nova or ambient samba. Wanky moogs merge with rattling berimbau, congas percolating under electric piano, and heavenly vocals breaking in like sunshowers. Perfect for dancing or dreaming, BOSSA MUNDO takes the pulse of the way we live now -- or at least the way we'd like to.
