Candeia - Axé! Gente Amiga Do Samba [1978 Atlantic/WEA] 320 kbps - 70 mb (Reup) fixed



Another pick from the essential list of Luiz Americo on my sidebar. Only 7 tracks here, but what a 7 they are. Fantastic, fantastic, fantastic. So much to enjoy here. From the choral work, to the cuica playing to the overall groove laid down by Candeia & group. Great on all levels. Spins amazingly! A real treat! Get this!

File Under: Samba

P.S. I hate to compare apples to oranges, but this artist has an almost trancy type of deep soul vibe that I associate with an artist like James Brown. Candeia has amazing charisma & all fall under his magical spell on this session.

  1. que bom!!! This is some Candeia I don't have! I can't wait to hear it as well as the Adinoran Barbosa shares (some of which I do have but I can't enough of him lately).

    Normally I would not stoop so low as to leave anything resembling spam in a comment, but I am desperate for any information about this record by Alaide Costa I have posted over at my place. If you or anyone knows anything about this record -- fala!!

    (Bold) Escapism in the face of such cloudy futures provided/guided by that individual with tremendous Thyme! Another share that bolsters one's guarded optimism.

    obrigado!

  3. your charisma observation just reminded me -- Have you ever seen a documentary from the 70s that features Candeia heavily and also features Paulinho da Viola, who was also artistic consultant to the filmmakers? I can't recall the name of it right now but it was made for TV Globo. I have a DVD copy that was transferred from VHS that I picked up in São Paulo. It's not with me at the moment but is backed up on a harddrive. It's only 1 hour but its amazing!

  6. Dear friend,

    As you might have known, blog "Abracadabra LPs from Brazil" was closed by Blogger. Because I do not know how long it will take to have the new blog ready and working, I decided to make a temporary one, where I will be posting some new stuff and old ones as well.
