Bueno, es el otro disco de los muchachones morochos y tirabombas que me queda sin publicar, así que ya que estamos, lo publico para el que le interese...

Pero empezamos con un poco de historia...
Resulta que la banda Banda Black Rio original fue una de las grandes bandas brasileñas de las décadas del 70 y 80, fueron pioneros en mezclar la samba con el funk, y desempeñó un papel clave en la escena musical de Río en la época de la dictadura militar. Claro que todo movimiento cultural también es político y social (cosa que no me canso de relacionar en mis posteos), la Banda Black Rio original reunió en escena todo el funk negro de Río para protestar contra la represión, la industria discográfica conservadora y prensa de la clase media blanca, movilizando a la juventud brasileña negra que estaban desencantados contra la dictadura militar.


La banda dejó de tocar tras la muerte de uno de sus miembros (Oberdan Magalhães, fundador y líder) en 1984, pero hace poco ha revivido de la mano del hijo de Oberdan: William, cantante y multi- instrumentista que escribió o re-escribió cada canción de este disco y sumó un número de celebridades que aceptó sumarse al nuevo proyecto tirabombas (naaaa, lo de tirabombas es joda, parecen más bueno que Lassie).
Banda Black Río fue una de las bandas más importantes de Brasil. En los años 70 la banda mostró al mundo que la fusión del jazz y el funk junto con la samba y el ritmo brasileño, esos fueron los elementos necesarios para formar su estilo y hacer la diferencia. Ahora, la banda se vuelve a notar fresca, firme y segura con esa rítmica de jazz -funk con toques brasileros. Todos los que tocan aquí son grandes músicos, tocando canciones de Gilberto Gil o Caetano Veloso (entre otros íconos brasileros como Seu Jorge, Marcio Local y Elza Soares).
William Magalhães formó una moderna personificando el espíritu del grupo original que conformara su padre Oberdan.
La filosofía de "Super Nova Samba Funk" sigue siendo la misma: la celebración de la musicalidad negra de Brasil a través de una fuerte representación lírica y su combinación única de jazz, funk, soul, samba y música negra brasilera, péro ahora con nuevos elementos que se suman a la mezcolanza negrística que aquí se aplica.
El espíritu es el mismo pero su estilo ha cambiado, ya no es una banda de funk casi instrumental e intercambiando el jazz, el rock y el soul con ritmos brasileros. Ahora lo vocal ha cobrado un importancia que antes no tenía, y la variedad de músicas que interpretan es mucho más amplia, temas de Gilberto Gil y Caetano Veloso se intercambian con hip-hop, bossa nova, pop o despliegues de soul, volviendo a vincular a Río de Janeiro con New York...

(...) En 1977, Banda Black Río lanza el primer álbum, María Fumaça por Warner Music. En 1978, la RCA lanza el álbum de BBR Gafieira Universal uno de los mejores discos jamás visto en el mercado. El tercer álbum Saci Perere se puso en marcha en 1978 y reeditado en 1980, la banda se ganó aún más fuerza en el mercado internacional. Después de un largo descanso, BBR regresó a los mercado de la musica. En 2000 lanzó el CD Movimento e este fue lanzado en Inglaterra en 2002 con el nombre Rebirth(Renacimiento). En 2011, BBR amplía su concepto y lleva a la opinión pública su 6to álbum, Super Nova Samba Funk. Un álbum audaz que mantiene las bases originales y modernizadas con la inclusión de diversos elementos. El álbum está producido por William Magalhães, hijo de Oberdan Magalhães - el líder de la banda en su primer edición. William ha sido durante más de una década, la persona a encender la llama de la banda. En los años 70 cuando el BBR vinieron, la banda tuvo una clara filosofía de la unir la samba-funk con las diferentes bases brasileñas, y con los arreglos de metales, mezclar armoniosamente todo en uno ritmo – el sonido de la Black Rio. BBR ha sido una gran referencia para el mundo de la música, artistas de renombre como MosDef ha grabado sus canciones. Con los años, tenía BBR varias configuraciones. En 2011, BBR tiene Super Nova Samba Funk, puesta en marcha por Farout una grabadora Inglesa. El álbum es la unificación de la música negra en una variedad de ritmos desde el jazz al rap. Es la unión de estilos, artistas y generaciones. El álbum muestra a su audiencia que el concepto original está vivo y modernizado y tiene el honor de tener como iconos de la música, artistas como Gilberto Gil E.Soares, Caetano Veloso y otros

We almost spat our tea all over the computer screen when we got the notification this morning of a new Banda Black Rio album. Having just revovered we then almost choked on our toast and marmite when we read they had also dragged Seu Jorge, Marcio Local, Elza Soares and Caetano Veloso amongst others into the studio as well. They've even enlisted Flame Killer and GOD PT3 from the Mobb Deep crew on 'Back to the Project' to share their ghetto drug and violence tales, all too familiar in the favelas, to keep the cross cultural vibes right up to date.
Now that wouldn't be much good if the music didn't sound good and from the track snippets below it look like the album is going to be one of the soundtracks to our summer. There is uptempo vocal jazz fusion on 'Louis Lane' feat Seu Jorge, one of our favourite modern samba soulsters, Marcio Local doing the business on the broken, building soul killer 'Quem Vem Lá', the fresh Brazilian boogie of 'Som De Preto' and the classic sounding string laden mellow vibes of 'Aos Pes do Redentor' featuring Caetano Veloso.
(...) Formed in Rio De Janeiro, 1976, Banda Black Rio pioneered the soul-funk movement in Brazil led by renowned saxophonist Oberdan Magalhaes. As global stars of the politically charged Black Rio movement, emerging almost a decade earlier from the Soul Brasileiro genre, BBR brought together Rio’s black funk scene to rally against repression, a conservative record industry and white middle class press to mobilise disenchanted black Brazilian youth against the military dictatorship that mirrored the struggles in North America. Banda Black Rio released a string of unforgettable recordings in the late-1970s from 1977 debut album, Maria Fumaça, on Warner Music to 1978’s Gafieira Universal on RCA Recordings that is considered one of the all-time great Brazilian jazz-funk records. The third album, SaciPererê, was also released in 1978 by which point the band had made a lasting impact both in Brazil and abroad. Following the death of original band leader Oberdan Magalhães in 1984 the band stopped recording and performing. Far Out’s Joe Davis helped the rare-groove scene rediscover BBR in the early 90s supplying the top DJs such as Gilles Peterson and Norman Jay with the imported vinyl before celebrated artists such as Mos Def and Incognito recorded their songs to further resurrect the legendary band’s name. With a renaissance in Brazil's black music culture led by a new generation of soul, funk and hip hop artists BBR finally arrived back with a brand new formation for comeback album Rebirth in 2000, before launching their most ambitious project to date with 2011’s Super Nova Samba Funk – the group’s sixth studio album produced and led by William Magalhães.
The philosophy on Super Nova Samba Funk remains the same: celebrating the musicality of black Brazil through strong lyrical representation and its unique combination of jazz, funk, soul, samba and gafieira. Title track opener Super Nova Samba Funk and Samba Nova are two instrumental tracks that showcase Rio’s finest players who together form BBR. Isabela combines elegant brass, jazz and gafieira swing that counts the special input of Elza Soares – the legendary scatting samba singer – and Cesar Carmargo Mariano – the famed pianist and arranger, father of Maria Rita, and husband to Elis Regina. Irerê is built around a beautiful melody sung to Africa by Gilberto Gil – bossa nova MPB and tropilcalia revolutionary. Nossa Jornada, Final Feliz and Aos Pés do Redentor, featuring Tropicalia and bossa pioneer Caetano Veloso, confirm Afro-Brazilian roots exist in bossa nova and samba.
Seu Jorge – world famous Brazilian musician, singer, songwriter and actor famed for his roles in City of God and Life Aquatic whose latest music project with Almaz signed to Stones Throw Records – distinctive samba vocals fire the infectious Brazilian soul-pop of Louis Lane; Marcio Local – a major new Brazilian star signed to David Byrne’s Luaka Bop imprint – combines samba and soul on the swinging “carioca” melody Quem Vem lá. Rap and R&B brings respected artists such as Dom Pixote and Mano Brown as well as notorious Queens, New York, rappers from the million-selling Mobb Deep crew Flame Killer – extensively featured with Mobb Deep – and God Pt3 – leading member in Blaq Mobb & Infamous Mobb – on US East Coast hip-hop collaboration track Back to the Project.

This isn’t the first time Sounds and Colours have written about Banda Black Rio, and after listening to their new album, I am sure this won’t be the last. Banda Black Rio first experienced success in the 70s but stopped in the early 80s due to its leader’s, Oberdan Magalhaes, tragic death. However, the importance of Banda Black Rio was never forgotten and Oberdan’s son, William Magalhaes put the pieces together, formed a new group and continued the band’s legacy. The new album Super Nova Samba Funk proves that William’s effort to keep the band alive has definitely paid off.
Historically, both Banda Black Rio and William himself have worked with some of the finest Brazilian musicians, such as Caetano Veloso, Gilberto Gil and Luiz Melodia. In this new Super Nova Samba Funk it is not different; there are lots of special collaborations and some other surprising guests. The album lives up to the main characteristic of Banda Black Rio, which is to mix different musical elements and instruments but always stick to the core of what is known as contemporary black music.
The album starts with a song called “Nove no Samba”, which brings back the delicious combination of instruments so typical of Banda Black Rio. It’s followed by the first two guest appearances of the album, an unusual encounter between “Brazilian gasgsta rap” singer Mano Brown and multi-million selling MPB singer Seu Jorge. The mix between the two guests and Banda Black Rio worked out really well and has made “Louis Lane” an uplifting funky tune, with the potential to be played at nightclubs across Brazil and the rest of the world.
The two first tracks are followed by a sequence of six songs which I want to mention one by one, since they seem to be the most authorial songs of the group. “America do Sul”, “Quem Vem La”, “Samba Nova”, “Som Preto”, “Deixa Estar” and “Nossa Jornada” are six songs that – in my opinion – clearly mark a point of difference between what Banda Black Rio used to be and what it is now. In other words, the innovations that can be found in these six tracks show that although William Magalhaes and his band still respect and carry on the tradition of the old Banda Black Rio, they have made their music sound more contemporary, using modern elements in the arrangement and the singing, including rap and strong beats. “America do Sul” and “Som de Preto” deserve some special attention.
Track number nine, “It’s the Time”, opens up a new sequence in the album. It is the first of three ‘international’ songs, sounding very chilled and romantic with a seductive melody. It sounds almost nostalgic, or saudosista (full of saudade), while also contemporary, filled with modern elements and beats, which seems to be the perfect soundtrack for some good summer days.
The second of the ‘international’ tracks is the surprising “Back to the Project”, a hip-hop song featuring rappers Flame Killer and God PT3. A mix of Brazilian Portuguese and American English rap, the song comes out of the blue on this CD. I admit that I didn’t expect to hear hip-hop on a Banda Black Rio album. However, the neat production and quality of the song proves that Banda Black Rio is mature enough to produce other genres of Black Music, which is a sign of both maturity and versatility of William Magalhaes and his band.
After a whistle stop tour of the hip-hop world, the last – and most – ‘international’ song of the album is the brilliant “Paname”, which brings back the old school elements so recognisable of Banda Black Rio but also introduces an upbeat vibe, making this tune a must play on dance floors. The production is creative and ambitious, using a sample of the classic “Mercy, Mercy”, and is sung in both English and French, introducing French rap through the guest appearance of the amazing Pyroman. The final result is a groovy and “worldy” song, the biggest highlight of the album so far.
Back to the Brazilian music side of things, song number twelve “Isabella” features Brazilian old school singer Elza Soares. This is one more song that lives up to Banda Black Rio’s tradition, as it is highly influenced by samba and uses more classical arrangements and instruments such as the ultra Brazilian cuica. Also, Elza Soares’ voice is an instrument by itself. Great tune!
“Isabella” is followed by one of the best songs on the album, “Lindos Olhos”, which has the collaboration of Seu Jorge. Beautiful lyrics and a combination of soothing instruments make this song sound almost like a romantic ballad. Seu Jorge’s performance is sublime, accompanied by an inspired Banda Black Rio.
William Magalhaes’ ‘bassy’ voice dictates the rhythm of this next track, “Final Feliz”. Once again elements of rap are introduced to give a more contemporary vibe to the song. “Final Feliz” means happy ending in Portuguese, an almost prophetic title in that the final two tracks provide just this feeling.
“Irere” is the second to last song of this album, in which William Magalhaes hosts Brazilian music star Gilberto Gil. It all becomes even more special when Caetano Veloso lends his voice to “Aos Pes do Redentor”, the last track of Super Nova Samba Funk. The song sounds like a tribute to Rio de Janeiro and Brazilian music itself. It is a divine bossa nova song, so chilled out and full of easy rhymes and catchy lyrics, which talk about sailing around Rio’s beaches.
The biggest merit of Banda Black Rio’s new album is that it shows how William Magalhaes and his fellow band members are perfectly able to mix tradition with innovation. The music produced by Oberdan Magalhaes and the old Banda Black Rio, in albums such as Maria Fumaca, is still very present in these songs. However, the new Banda Black Rio is not afraid of experimenting and taking their music to a next level. Something they have definitely done with Super Nova Samba Funk.
Eduardo Pagnoncelli

The original Banda Black Rio were one of the great Brazilian bands of the 1970s and 80s. Formed by saxophonist Oberdan Magalhães, they were pioneers of the country's soul, samba and funk movement, and played a key role in Rio's black music scene in the days of the military dictatorship. The band stopped playing after Oberdan's death in 1984, but have now been revived by his son William, a singer and multi-instrumentalist who wrote or co-wrote every track on a set that's remarkable mostly for the number of celebrities who agreed to join in. Left to themselves, as on the title track, the band play cool, tight and rhythmic jazz-funk with a Brazilian edge, mixing brass with keyboards and guitar. They are great musicians, but sound even better as a backing band. Here, they are joined by a cast that includes the new samba hero Marcio Local and the charmingly relaxed Seu Jorge. There's a cool, drifting ballad from Gilberto Gil, and a lilting, slinky reminder from Caetano Veloso of the way Brazilian soul-funk was influenced by bossa and samba. Best of all, there's another great veteran, Elza Soares, with her upbeat, finger-clicking treatment of Isabela proving she is still in magnificent form.

William Magalhaes forms a modern-day Banda Black Rio epitomising the spirit of his father Oberdan's original '70s Brazilian samba soul and funk group. BBR defined the Black Rio movement now enjoying a revival headed by Magalhaes' incarnation with the passion of soul and funk again linking Rio and New York for a feel-good blast that also takes in hip-hop, samba, pop and bossa. Brazilian icons Seu Jorge, Marcio Local and Elza Soares feature alongside bossa pioneers Caetano Veloso and Gilberto Gil as well as Flame Killer and GOD PT3 from the famed NYC Mobb Deep crew. Super Nova Samba Funk brings Rio's black music cultures together to embody the ecstatic revival of Brazil and the Black Rio movement. Formed in Rio De Janeiro, 1976, Banda Black Rio pioneered the soul-funk movement in Brazil led by renowned saxophonist Oberdan Magalhaes. As global stars of the politically charged Black Rio movement, emerging almost a decade earlier from the Soul Brasileiro genre, BBR brought together Rio's black funk scene to rally against repression, a conservative record industry and white middle class press to mobilise disenchanted black Brazilian youth against the military dictatorship that mirrored the struggles in North America.

SNSF is a unification of black music styles, rhythms, artists & generations rising up like an exploding super nova star.

Ya dije, a mí nome gusta el funk, el soul o lo que estos morochos muchachones despliegan aquí, pero si reconozco que dentro de lo que hacían lo hacían muy bien, pero no por ello voy a dejar de traer estos grandes músicos a nuestros espacio.
Y sobre todo, "Super Nova Samba Funk" es la unificación de los diferentes estilos de música negra, ritmos, artistas y generaciones unidos para seguie explorando ese universo que es la música.
Y es lo último que publico de esta gente, porque no tengo nada más.
