(Guest post by LC Franca all the way from Rio! LC wanted to share music from her country with us and I naturally agreed. The link between the songs is the rebeldia (revolt) - each song does it in it's own way: By mixing different rhythms, different instruments or simply by living their lives intensely. Thank you for sharing the music with us, LC.)

Ok, let's see: Chico Science was the leader of the Manguebeat movement. Some years ago I had the privilege to see his first show here, in Rio - it was surely one of the best shows I've ever seen in my life! A great fusion between rock, hip hop, maracatu y otras cositas mas. Their first album is called "Da Lama ao Caos" which translates as "from mud to chaos". Chico died in 1997, in a car crash.
"Dura na queda" is a song that suits perfectly Elza Soares. It rough translation would be "hard to beat" (queda means fall), just like her.
Monbojo is an indie group from Recife, their album "Nada de novo" fusions "chorinho" with flute music.
When reggae singer Papa Winnie came to Brasil without a band to play with, (!?) he started singing as O Rappa. This song comes from the "Lado A Lado B" album. Just like the old vinyls, there's one favela divided in A side and B side. Awful.
Os Mutantes were one of the great bands from the late 60's and the early 70's, their music was very influenced by Sgt. Pepper's. Ando meio desligado dates from 1969.
And last but not least, Ney Matogrosso. FM Rebeldia was a fictional radio station that started the war between the Morro (favela) and, as is called here, the "Asfalto" (asphalt, the streets).

O rappa - me deixa
Monbojo - deixe-se acreditar
Ney Matogrosso - FM rebeldia
Elza Soares - dura na queda
Os mutantes - Ando meio desligado
Chico Science and Nacao Zumbi - manguetown

    Yeah I agree, the aac files are not that helpful because I don't own an ipod, the selections are great:
    I'll keep O rappa, monbojo, elza and os mutantes.

    In the sober light of day, I realize you put the m4p note at the bottom of the post. Disregard my DRM rant of last night. :D
