Sergio Mendes has long been a leading practitioner of the fusion of Brazilian rhythms with North American pop sensibilities. BRASILEIRO is an almost purely Brazilian record, drenched with the folk and urban music of Rio, Bahia, and Brazil's Northeast. It features performances and compositions from some of the true heroes of contemporary Brazilian music, most notably Hermeto Pascoal, Ivan Lins, and diamond-in-the-rough Joao Bosco.
The opening cut, "Fanfarra (Cabua-Le-Le)," begins with the huge, exuberant sound of a 100-drummer-strong samba school, recorded in a Rio parking lot. By turns tribal and cosmopolitan, track after track takes you on a tour of the real Brazilian musical landscape (with the occasional funky side trip), always rooted in drumming and percussion. Most of the lyrics are in Portuguese, but the overall impression is as familiar and cheering as sunlight. Bossa nova fans take note--this is not your mother's bossa nova record: it's a gorgeous amalgam of rhythm and arching melody, a tropical delight.
