Producers into hip dance music have been drawing from Brazil's rich rhythmic tradition for years. It's a good idea to research where the fusion of traditional Brazilian folk music and Western electronica started and what the results of this fusion are. The concert series Brasil Electrico
promises to be a revealing search leading from Deodato via Azymuth to Vinicius Cantuária. The music of Bossacucanova
, the name by which the DJs and producers Alexandre Moreira, Marcelo Da Lua and Marcio Menescal go, is extremely dancable. The trio remixes authentic bossa classics and after Marcio Menescal asked his father Roberto Menescal
- an old bossa nova master himself- to join the band, the musical circle was complete.
