Cultures Of Soul

Emilio Santiago / Osmar Milito E Quarteto Forma - Bananeira b/w América Latina (7")


When Greg Caz and Deano Sounds teamed up to create The Brasileiro Treasure Box Of Funk & Soul they created a collection of vintage Brazilian music that stretches across the scope of funk, soul, and psychedelic.

Co-compiler and Brazilian music aficionado, Greg Caz says: “Without necessarily having a central theme other than funky nuggets from the first half of the 70s, we believe this compilation displays its own particular sense of logic, and that these songs ultimately all sound fantastic together. Regardless of one’s familiarity, or lack thereof, with artists like Antonio Carlos & Jocafi, Os Incríveis, Toni Tornado or Celia, the material on these 45s speaks its own truth and justifies their inclusion here. Many of these were originally available as singles, while others were taken from albums, but all are guaranteed to find their way into many DJ boxes and playlists.”

The stunning 45s from this set will now be available for individual sale. The series continues with the split 7” containing the essential rare groove track “Bananeira” by Emilio Santiago b/w Osmar Milito E Quarteto Forma’s rare “América Latina” (as sampled by Madlib). Also available, the extremely rare and funky “Labirinto” by 2001 & Beto on a split 45 with the Fender Rhodes driven infectious samba from Trio Mocotó called “Swinga Sambaby.”/p>
