LATIN AMERICA: REVIEWS CELIA MARA - SANTA REBELDIA
WITH MESSAGES LIKE ‘NO MORE PAIN FOR OUR PEOPLE’ AND ‘FOR ALL THE WOMEN WHO LIVE AND FIGHT FOR A MORE JUST SOCIETY’ SPLASHED ACROSS THE ALBUM ARTWORK YOU COULD BE FORGIVEN FOR EXPECTING A LECTURE IN POLITICAL SENSIBILITIES AND DISCRIMINATION. IN FACT THAT IS EXACTLY WHAT YOU GET BUT IT IS DELIVERED WITH A SMILE AND BACKED BY PLAYFUL BEATS

Celia Mara may have a dark voice and a serious message but Santa Rebeldia is an inherently fun album, for the most part at least. Growing up in Minas Gerias amidst the drums of Afro-Brazilian religion Candomble, eerie Christian chants and melancholic local folklore has clearly had an influenced on Celia and her music bears the proof. She often goes under the moniker ‘bastardista’, the music being her bastard offspring. On the track ‘Nana Buruke’ gospel choruses rub up against lingering guitar riffs, while on ‘Ilegal da Geladeria’ it’s computer effects and the wonderfully Brazilian sound of the cuica. Elsewhere there hints of reggaeton, punk, samba-funk and Spanish pop with more traditional Brazilian sounds of Brazil popping up though out. At school, it’s claimed, her gender precluded her from playing percussion and her class (read wealth) placed other instruments out of her reach. Now she’s getting her own back rattling through a long list of instruments and drawing on a range of sounds. This is one for the hostels and student halls of Europe and South America; Manu Chao meets Yerba Buena meets Carlinhos Brown meets… —Joe Kent Monday 3 November 2008

JUNGLE'S TEAM REVIEWS THE ELITE SQUAD DVD, SKANK, CELIA MARA, WATCHA CLAN AND MORE
Elite Squad Words: Sara Puerta Label: Optimum +++ After winning a Golden Bear at the last Berlin Film Festival, José Padilha's Elite Squad went on to spark controversy over the way it depicted drug trafficking and violence in Rio. In the UK, the movie debuted last August and will be launched on DVD on the 19th. Extras include an exclusive interview with the director. Based on the novel Elite Squad, written by ex-police officers André Batista and Rodrigo Pimental, the film reveals the ins and outs of drug trafficking in Rio de Janeiro. Unlike City of God, Elite Squad depicts the day to day routine from the point of view of a captain of the BOPE, the Special Police Operations Battalion of the Rio de Janeiro Military Police. There was also some stir due to the fact the move was widely bootlegged even before it reach the screens in Brasil, which makes one wonder if the suggested retail price - £19.90 - isn't a bit too much. Santa Rebeldia - Celia Mara Words: Alba Cabral Label: Globalista ++ With a large dose of humour, Celia Mara is launching yet another CD packed with disturbing lyrics "that are sang loudly to disguise the pain". The irreverant tone of the compositions is also explicit in the theatrical way in which Celia sings: some verses seem more spoken than sung. Whilst her earlier work was always characterised by a fusion of Latin rhythms, funk and samba, on Santa Rebeldia repetitive electronic beats reign supreme. Estandarte - Skank Words: Fernando Duarte Label: Sony / BMG +++ The pun is too tempting for a band famous for songs with football references: Brasilian four-piece Skank misses some sitters in what could be an interesting album for its departure from the Britpopinspired previous works (Cosmotron and Carrossel). In theory, the idea of flirting with an electro-rock atmosphere sounds fresh, but in practice it stumbles with lyrics much more suited to the usual pop formula, as well as the scatting made simultaneously so famous and irritatingly overused by singer and lead guitarist Samuel Rosa - as anyone who remembers Skank's assassination of The Police's Wrapped Around Your Finger will remember. There are exceptions, though: 'Para-Raio' and 'Canção Áspera' and 'Notícias do Submundo' are great songs in which the band sounds fresh and spontaneous as Cristiano Ronaldo in his heyday. But three tracks out of 12 is a very low score…

Diaspora HI-FI - Watcha Clan Words: Tom Crookston Label: Piranha Musik +++ The city of Marseille is France's cultural melting pot, with large and long-established immigrant communities from across the world. It's also home to the Watcha Clan, the multinational five-piece whose debut album truly reflects the city's diversity. With songs in six different languages, including Spanish, French and Arabic, Diaspora Hi-Fi blends traditional north-African sounds with gypsy folk, reggae and a whole host of electronic and dub influences to create something truly unique. This is nu-world music at its most diverse, and even though some of

WORLD MUSIC LINKS BACK ISSUES

If you thought that the most progressive “Nu Brazilian” music was still being hatched in the soundlabs of Sao Paulo, guess again, because one of the best new “Brazilian” records to come around this year is actually from Austria. That’s right, Austria, land of Mozart, Strauss and, um, Falco. But Brazilian transplant Celia Mara builds a bridge between her homeland’s lush tropical sounds and chilly Teutontic electronica. Singing mostly in Portuguese, her big voice rides MPB—samba bossa nova, forro—and even tango rhythms over jazzy and dubby electronic breakbeats (programmed and arranged by Geri Schuller and Michael Kreiner). The result is Bastardista, her fourth album chock full of sophisticated, mostly downtempo chillout tracks that Bebel Gilberto would kill for. Standout tracks include “Jade,” “Folha” and “Cacador de Almas.”

Celia Mara

BASTARDISTA
Globalista A little bit of everything Brazilian, from electro to dancefloor, from ethno to pop. Sung in

All Nominations Portuguese, English and French, she amplifies the message implicit in the title – there’s no such

thing as purity, let’s get mixed up here! And she does, with a remix by Frankie Valentine included. In her own words, she is "reducing the complicated to the rhythm of your heart". Brazil MG/24.05.2005 Artist URL: http://www.celia-mara.net/

There were plenty of highs with possibly the highest number of seminal albums from global artists hitting the shelves in any one year ever. We identify global bricalagismo as a new trend with the trickle of artists fighting globalism through global mix and mash up became a flood. (See below). At the same time, bombs, war, natural disasters, starvation and their grim colleagues hit everyone from London to Mali, Kashmir to New Orleans, Central America to Zimbabwe and Sudan. All this on the heels of the Tsunami that hit Boxing Day last year. In the face of these, we looked to our politicians and they were found wanting. Instead people around the world reached out to each other. So here are my picks of the year, please use the comments box below to add your own! Rappin’ Hood - Sujeito Homen 2 Who could fail to warm to an album that drew on classic Brazilian tunes for samples and then got heavyweights like Gilerto Gil and Caetano Veloso to take part? A seminal Brazilian hip hop album and an instant classic. Thione Seck - Orientation A thing of great beauty emerged from this Bollywood meets Senegal venture. A fusion album that owes absolutely nothing to pandering for western audiences and unsurprisingly captures them with its sincerity and warmth nonetheless. Laye Sowe & Daby Balde Two great new voices from Senegal with relaxed traditional sounds emerged and both released superb albums. Daby got the most attention (probably deservedly) but both are big voices for the future. Souad Massi - Honeysuckle (Mesk Elil) A truly enchanting album from Algerian exile Souad Massi justified her esteemed place in the global music canon but she blew everyone away with an amazing duet with Daby Balde. Essential stuff. Baaba Maal and Africa 05 The year started with great hopes that finally world aid, trade, HIV and debt relief would begin to release their crushing dead hand from Africa and at the same time there was a conscious effort by a huge number of cultural institutions to focus on the many positive things happening on the continent. Bob Geldof’s failure to support African musicians left a bad taste in many people’s mouths but no one showed more dignity and commitment than Baaba Maal. Whether talking about the problems or putting on fantastic concerts, Baaba Maal got it right in every way. Mahmoud Ahmed at WOMAD Old time Ethiopian, Mahmoud Ahmed had a triumphant debut in the UK at WOMAD ensuring that his is, belatedly, going to be one of the names to watch for next year. Anga Diaz - Echu Mingua This release nearly dropped off the radar but after a sparkling review in Fly by our own Matthew Shorter, World Circuit were able to force the newspapers to give it another listen, they did, they fell in love and the release took off.

about us

You wouldn’t expect some of the best nu-Brazilian music to be coming out of Austria. But this is where multi-talented musician Celia Mara indulges her Brazilian heritage by creating a mix of electronic and acoustic melodies. When recording, Mara is nearly a one-woman show — she composes, sings, plays guitar and arranges her own songs. Her third album “Bastardista,” released in May, received worldwide acclaim and remained in the world music charts for three months. On tour Mara fronts a four-person band with one American and two Austrian musicians providing back-up vocals, as well as live keys, bass and drums. Here Mara is in her element. Her vocal range is remarkable and her music creates a beautifully uplifting atmosphere. And of course, the show comes with all the flair you would expect from a Brazilian. Mara’s performance is part of Nazim Nadirov’s “Ethnotronica” series. The events will bring to Moscow some of the best ethno-electronic performers from around the world, including both unknown and established artists. Celia Mara spices up Molodaya Gvardiya from 9 p. m. on November 4. Tickets are 707-1415 rubles at the door.
