For me, nothing welcomes the warming East Coast weather like some great music to move your body. Via Post World Industries comes the latest album from Maga Bo, Quilombo do Futuro.
The music first caught my ears last week on Remezcla (who really is on the cutting edge of releasing relatively unknown but amazing artists).
A quilombo was an autonomous, fugitive settlement founded by ex-slaves and others in colonial Brazil. This album sonically manifests that history by mixing Afro-Brazilian rhythms and traditions like capoeira mixed with electronic elements and hip hop beats.
The album drops May 22nd.
