MP3 Download: Original Bossa Nova from Os Magrelos

By 19 October, 2011

Os Magrelos are a project started by Marlysse Simmons, also of Bio Ritmo, a group who blew us away with their album La Verdad a couple of months ago.

In fact, Os Magrelos share a couple of members with Bio Ritmo (from Richmond, Virginia) with Cameron Ralston (bass) and Toby Whitaker (trombone) also playing with both. In addition, Os Magrelos boast Matt Wyatt (drums, also plays in Beleza Brazil) and Laura Ann Singh. She sings on this original bossa nova, released as a b-side on a new 45 released on Electric Cowbell Records, that also includes a cover of Irani Barros and Nelson Cavaquinho’s “Luz Negra” and “Canada Drive”, a solo track by Marlysse Simmons.
