CD Review: Maga Bo's 'Quilombo Do Futuro'

Maga Bo
Quilombo Do Futuro
Post World Industries

The Afro-Brazilian rhythms of contemporary musicians, Maga Bo, continue to surprise listeners with a hankering for gritty, electronic soundscapes of urban melodies and in-your-face dub. The vocals are diverse and very urbanized. There is a strong hip-hop and capoeira presence throughout. The twelve tracks are featured by several musicians, including Bnegao, Gaspar, Speed Freaks, MC Zulu, Rosangela Macedo, and others. The immense percussion arrangements and group vocals make the album very enticing for all who listen to it. The Afro-Brazilian elements are very pronounced and worth the listening experience. For dub fans, Maga Bo is where it is at. ~ Matthew Forss
