Fifteen years ago @mombojo dropped their first record, “Nadadenovo”. Contrary to the title (“Nothing new” in English), its a remarkable creative album considered a classic in Brazil’s manguebeat, a cultural movement created circa 1991 in the city of Recife by the influence of bands like @nacaozumbioficial and @mundolivre_sa 🦀
.
Mombojó is part of the second wave of this movement that fuses Brazil’s maracatu, bossa nova, and samba with eletronica, jazz, punk, hip hop, and psychedelic rock 🤘🏽
.
The band released five albums along the years, including the EP “Summer Long” with French singer Laetitia Sadier, best known as the lead vocalist for @stereolabgroop 🔬
.
“Nadadenovo” sound is truly unique with sophisticated arrangements and overwhelming drama on lyrics about love, struggles and loneliness 💔
.
@assustadodiscos is celebrating the album’s anniversary with a limited LP edition available online at @tres.selos. Highly recommended 💎
