Taking the classic samba by Nelson-Cavaquinho, Os Magrelos turn Luz Negra into a hypnotizing, bass heavy instrumental that samples the full spectrum of sounds from a vintage Farfisa organ. On Side B, you’ll feel the “saudade” or nostalgia, in the original bossa nova “Seja Como For” which features the classy voice of Laura Ann Singh accompanied by the mellow trombone of Tobias Whitaker (Bio Ritmo). The surprise bonus track, Canada Drive, is the solo project of leader Magrela Rose (aka Marlysse of Bio Ritmo). It’s a minute and a half of samba drum-machine madness beneath layers of lost sounds from a Juno 106. We are excited to debut the ‘samba rock’ of Os Magrelos.
