Boebis “Raíces” Brazilian Mix

By 30 June, 2014

This is a pure ‘roots’ (raíces) mix from French DJ and Brazilian music expert Boebis as he explores coco, samba de roda, pontos de macumbas, capoeira, maracatú, jongo and other afro, spiritual and folkloric music from Brazil on a journey that spans from legendary names like Clementina de Jesus, Mestre Lucindo and Nelson Cavaquinho to the more recent sounds of Siba, Alessandra Leão and Sambanzo.

You can check out more of Boebis’ mixes and his amazing research into Brazilian music (in French) at Bonjour Samba and Berceuse Électrique.
