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!

this tape was a real urgent work to do – or better say a big pleasure and joy! It is a collection of old to contemporary brasilian tunes I collected on several Brasil trips in the last 2 years. All the tunes are recommends of friends I met, which helped me to raise my knowledge about brasilian music. So you have the chance to listen to the intelligent lyrics of Lucas Santtana or the melancholic samba of Cartola… Enjoy it – maybe with an ice-cold beer and some Cachaça?!?!
So it is a big wish also to dedicate this mixtape to my friends in Brasil!!!

I’m so happy to have the possibility to share here with you this amazing new video of our friend Maga Bo from Rio de Janeiro, BR! I remember the last time I met Bo at Ipanema beach. He was so focused in all the organisation of his album release, video productions and organising the remix productions that it took a few moments for us to get into a talk. I recognize that he already invests all his passion and energy into his project. After watching the new video I was thinking: GOOD INVEST BO!!! I love it!

In exchange for your donation, I’m offering a series of different prizes – from a digital download of the record, the remixes, instrumentals and acapellas, to a skype consultation, a custom DVD playlist, a mixtape, a DJ set or even a 1 day workshop.

after doing the last post I was looking for what is going on with Maga Bo the last period of time and checked his homepage. So I also found this live video of the Ruhr 2010 (Cultural Capital in this year!) Opening Party at Zeche Zollverein Essen, Germany. So have a look at this performance and hopefully we make it possible to get again Maga Bo here to have a collaboration with us.
