Album Review

Curumin is the stage name of Brazilian musician Luciano Nakata Albuquerque, who began his musical journey very early in life and had absorbed a wide variety of influences by the time he was a teenager, at which point he formed and played in a series of funk bands while learning about popular Brazilian music in school. His years of listening and gigging finally resulted in this very impressive album, which brings together elements of samba, funk, hip-hop, reggae, and 1970s synthesizer kitsch to often brilliant effect. That's "often," not "always," and there are one or two moments here (such as a pedestrian version of the Stevie Wonder protest song "You Haven't Done Nothing") that fall flat. But those are greatly outnumbered by such transcendent achievements as the gutbucket Latin funk and frantic turntablism of "Cade o Mocoto? (Essa Coisa)" and the faintly glitchy and reggae-tinged "Vem Menina," which features spectacular Portuguese rapping by Lino Crizz. Also worth noting are the dubwise trip-hop of "Acorda, Simpatico" and a strange but cool funk workout titled "Tudo Bem Malandro." Highly recommended.

21st century Brazilian samba funk

Curumin is a breath of fresh air. This is not "new bossa nova" but more on the funky and urban side. The sound is a sophisticated mix of samba, funk, dub, rock, with great electronica thrown on top in for effect. Samba instruments are mixed in with funky bass and drums. If you are into old Jorge Ben and Trio Mocoto, this will be up your alley. If you're not familiar with samba rock but looking for a new groove then pick this one up. It could be dance music or chill out music, depending on your mood. We played this one at a barbeque and everyone was blown away by how cool the sound is.


These songs are nothing like you have heard before, they just are something completely new that u should try out! i recommend the song "Guerreiro"/

Good funky upbeat brazilian album

I haven't had much luck finding good recent brazilian music living in PR. This album was a pleasant surprise, it's like a cross between Stevie Wonder and Jorge Ben Jor. The first four songs are probably my favorites, then the album loses some steam. Don't expect samba, bossa nova or much brazilian percussion. Do expect creative funky fusion.
