Stepping into a timewarp can sometimes leave you feeling disoriented, whether you jump forwards or backwards in time. Balako has done the seemingly impossible with the title track of their forthcoming E.P., Jungle Music.
Combining their native Bazilian samba with funk and disco straight from the early 1970’s Jungle Music is not in the least anachronistic. It sounds fresh, relevant, and has one hell of a killer groove.
Taking influence from Rio de Janeiro’s eclectic cultural scene and recorded live Diogo Strausz and Rodrigo Peirao are releasing Jungle Music following last year’s Hora de Balako.
Set for dropping on Greco-Roman records on the 22nd of June, you’ll be able to experience the mardis gras at any point in the year with this.
