Album Review

Timbalada has always based its music on the traditional timbau drum from Bahia. The group, led by the multi-talented Carlinhos Brown, incorporated elements of axé pop and turned it into a great commercial success in the early '90s. Since then, even long after Brown's departure from the group, Timbalada has been one of the most famous and artistically ambitious projects of the Bahian axé scene. Pure Brazil: Tribal Bahia brings together several of Timbalada's finest and most popular songs, such as "Beija-Flor," "Mulatê do Bundê," "Canto Pro Mar," "Toque de Timbaleiro," "Se Você Se For" and "Fricote da Terezinha" — all full of Afro-Bahian drum rhythms and contagious party energy capturing the essence of the Timbalada's fascinating timbau sound. Two of the highlights of the collection are "Margarida Perfumada," which is performed live with the legendary Caetano Veloso and "Papá Papet" another live caption, but this one with the queen of axé music, Ivete Sangalo. ~ Philip Jandovský, Rovi

Also employing vocalists, the peculiar aesthetics of the group include body painting and a multitude of pop signs that play with the contrast between tribal and industrial. The Timbalada is both a band and a Carnaval bloco...
