Brazilika

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - John Bush
Gilles Peterson's mix to celebrate the 15th anniversary of the Far Out label unites old and new with ease -- which is no wonder, from the man equally tuned in to dusty crates of previously forgotten LPs as well as the newly shrink-wrapped dubplate. Focused on the music of Brazil (obviously), Brazilika resurrects forgotten classics -- to cite just two: Jose Mauro's piece of string melancholia, "Obnoxious," and a version of the Doris Monteiro hit "E Isso Ai" by Sidney Miller (who wrote the song) -- alongside tracks from the '90s and 2000s (like remixes by Domu and Osunlade) that originally came out on Far Out, not just their publishing

(As most fans know, Brazil is hardly a uniform music culture.) Also worthy of being called out is "Quem Sou Eu" by the unknown Krishnanda, which brings together a little of the jazz avant-garde with electronics and some skewed Tom Zé type of songwriting.
