Cametá, a historical little Amazonian town on the shores of the river Tocantins, is the birthplace of the scorching music
known as 'Siriá'; a cross pollination between the music of the inhabitants of the Quilombos, (a Brazilian hinterland
settlement founded by escaped slaves of African origins) and the Indigenous People of the Amazon Rainforest. It is a
breathing, pulsing, emphatic beat, and the modernised version of this local music, created by Mestre Cupijó, has been
igniting street parties and traditional festivals across the state of Pará (Northern Brazil) for decades. And at last in 2014, the combustible sound of Siriá will be celebrated internationally as the feverish, tropical sound of the summer! Mestre Cupijó modernized this style in the 70s. It's relatively obscure music for Brasil itself and total darkness for the rest of the world. This horns-driven optimistic music was made to drink and party and could become a serious contender for summer soundtrack of the year. Also with the worldcup in Brasil starting in June, it could, should and will set fire to a lot of dancefloors around the world. Master Cupijó, the pillar of Pará's festive culture, and a humble pop icon who was ushered prominently into the country's history books, passed away on September 25, 2012 at the age of 76. Analog Africa are ferociously proud and honoured to have the chance to present these carefully selected tracks from his 6 studio albums. They hope that his music captivates you with the magic and bewilderment that is has them. They recognise his compositions as true anthems of life and vitality, vibrantly encouraging all to drink and dance until sunrise! Let go of your inhibitions and immerse yourself in the wonderful world of Mestre Cupijó... Segura!!!
