Orquestra Afro-Brasileira: 80 Anos
Artist: Orquestra Afro-Brasileira
Title: 80 Anos
Label: Daydream Library
Product Type: VINYL LP
Vinyl LP pressing. Legendary Brazilian group Orquestra Afro-Brasileira are reborn for their first new album in over fifty years, produced by Beastie Boys collaborator Mario Caldato Jr. Led by maverick composer Abigail Moura, Orquestra Afro-Brasileira were one of the most influential yet overlooked groups in Brazilian music history. Operating for almost thirty years until 1970, they released just two albums - the first of which, Obaluayê, has recently been reissued by Day Dreamer Records - and left behind a legacy of Afro-Brazilian consciousness that continues to resonate today.
