Music: Various Artists – Jambú e Os Míticos Sons Da Amazônia

The city of Belém, in the Northern state of Pará in Brazil, has long been a hotbed of culture and musical innovation. Having no prior knowledge to the creative and music culture in that part of Brazil, I was curious to listen to this new project featuring a variety of artists from that area. It is called Jambú e Os Míticos Sons Da Amazônia and is compiled by DJs Samy Ben Redjeb & Carlo Xavier. There is a rich history behind the Pará’s music, something you read in depth through their Bandcamp page here.

The record is full of tribal, percussive rhythms with gorgeous vocals and such profoundly soulful rhythms and short but densely textured compositions that are gorgeous and really do represent the life of the Amazonian people. Drumming, chants, flute and other instruments dominate the soundscape throughout this breathtaking compilation album. I’m amazed by how great this record is, having randomly discovered it recently, and I’m in awe of the spiritual tone and energy this album brings. It’s one to definitely immerse yourself into, and I’m happy this was put together. Looking forward to anything new from these guys.
