AfroReggae is the band from Rio de Janeiro that is part of the cultural organisation of the same name working for social change within the favela communities. The organisation has achieved phenomenal success in the last 13 years, using music and cultural programmes to change the lives of thousands of people in the areas hardest hit by drug-traffiking, violence and poverty. They are championed in Brazil by their musical godfathers Caetano Veloso, Gilberto Gil and actress Regina Cas. AfroReggae have since become a professional band and this culminated in a contract with Universal Music for the production of the 'Nova Cara' album in Brazil.

PRINCE FATTY & THE MUTANT HI-FI - RETURN OF THE GRINGO

Prince Fatty meets The Mutant Hifi in 'Return of Gringo!' is the fevered and frontal lobe-damaged brainchild of Nick Coplowe (The Mutant Hifi) and Mike Pelanconi (Prince Fatty), the result of years of plotting, planning, laughing and procrastinating. Put simply, it is a ... read more »

 

SANTOS, SONIA/SALINAS - SPEED/TENHA FE, POIS AMANHA UM LINDO DIA VAI NASCE

Sonia Santos' samba-boogie version of Jorge Ben's 'Speed' was originally released in 1978 on RCA. The B-side is a full on, albeit slightly cheesey, disco medley entitled 'Ben Discotheque' featuring Jorge Ben's 'Chove Chuva'.
