Double bill from two of Rio de Janeiro’s most forward-thinking musicians and frequent collaborators Domenico Lancellotti and Ricardo Dias Gomes. They have been revered names in Brazilian music over the past 20 years.
As a member of the +2’s, with Moreno Veloso and Kassin, Domenico released a trio of albums on Luaka Bop in the early 00s that pioneered a new Rio samba sound with elements of funk and psychedelia. Expect samba, synths and krautrock from him as per his recent album sramba released by Mais Um earlier this year, to critical acclaim.
Multi-instrumentalist Ricardo Dias Gomes first came to notice as a member of Caetano Veloso’s band Cê which helped reinvigorate Caetano’s career with a sound influenced by British new wave. He produced sramba and here he will showcase tracks from his recent album of experimental mûsica popular brasileira Muito Sol released by Brighton’s Hive Mind Records.
Praise for Domenico’s sramba:
