ZirIguiboom The Now Sound of Brazil
- Words: Margaret Murray
- Label: Six Degrees-Ziriguiboom
Ziriguiboom, archiver of all things Brazilian, ups the tropicalia ante with this collection of sexy-cool samba soul and bossa groove. A dedication to original and far-reaching Brazilian music underlies the entire selection. Who else could present in such wonderful form one-time heir to the bossa throne Carlos Lyra, one of the first musicians to use his music to defy the Brazilian dictatorship. The real star is the diversity of styles. Bossa nova, and even tropicalia are no longer the only games in town-the time is ripe for a resurgence of other grassroots genres like pagode or choro-both styles just waiting for a remix. Ziriguiboom offers a tease-let's hope more is on the way.
