Kafundó Records is back with the second volume of their compilation series, highlighting the latest in the contemporary Bass scene out of Brazil!
This second volume in Kafundó’s compilation series continues with the first’s mission to represent “electronic roots music” from a “third space” within Brazilian social geography. “Cafundó” means a far away and isolated place in Brazilian Portuguese. Beyond the favela/asfalto binary that exists in Brazil’s urban areas, there are alternative spaces that exist both within and outside the city. These places
are “far away” from traditional Brazilian social politics. The most commonly recognized such place is the Afro-Brazilian “quilombo” the Brazilian version of a maroon community.
Not only using Afro-Brazilian traditional rhythms and instruments, but many of these artists look beyond Brazil to the greater African diaspora. Songs using Brazilian regional rhythms are fused with digital styles formed in the ghettos of Jamaica and the United States. In this they aim to reframe the sometimesconflict- ridden Brazilian identity politics, to represent as participants in, and in solidarity with the global
Maga Bo and Wolfram Lange, co-founders of the Kafundó label, are both Rio de Janeiro based Brazilian music experts. Their compilation series on the Kafundó records label benefits from their close relationship with many of the key players in the contemporary Brazilian electronic scene. Look out for their continuing series in collaboration with Dutty Artz!
