Various Artists Favela Chic Postonove Vol. 3
- Words: Luciana Lopez
- Label: Milan
Unlike the Brazilian-derived lounge that's been popular for a minute, this album is the straight dope, encompassing a broad range of music from Brazil. From "Bananeira," a song that's been recorded by a list of artists (here performed by Emilio Santiago) to a version of "Spinning Wheel" in Portuguese (by Raulzinho of Impacto 8) to hip-hop tracks like "Hip Hop Nao Para" by Ginger Ale vs. Z'Africa Brasil, the third installment of Favela Chic cuts a well-chosen, head-nodding swath through Brazil's current music scene.
