Sorry for a week of no posting – my last days in Rio have been very hectic with loads of recording, going to bailes and visiting DJs and artists at their homes. Now I´m back in Berlin and working my way through tons of CDs and stuff that I got from various DJs. To be honest, there´s not much exciting new stuff around in Rio at the moment. The last new flavour in funk – Macumba – the more Bahian inspired funk, incorporating elements of Bahian music and Samba drumming, is limited to a few new tunes which circulate in the blogosphere. The majority of the rest is Tamborzinho after Tamborzinho, with hardly any exciting songs and lyrics – except for MC Maiquinho´s stuff. One of my favourite picks so far I found on a fifteen year old funk compilation, part of a big crate I copped on a street market in Rio´s center (see photo).

Here´s Bob Rum´s “Rap Do Silva” from 1993


Sorry for no photos from Rio – I lost my camera in a club, arghhh….
