Wednesday 19th October 2011
“The verve of the late 60s … Extremely authentic …” (Playboy Germany)
In old Brazil, there were these stashes to hide from oppressing powers. The term Mocambo was originally used for secret places and housings as well as clandestine villages … and is nowadays a very popular name for hotels, cafés, bars, coffee, cigars & rum.
The Mighty Mocambos are inspired by Jazz, Deep Funk, Afro-beat and SoulSince the late Nineties they are busy releasing 7inch singles on their own Mocambo Records label.
Their recent album This Is Gizelle Smith & The Mighty Mocambos with guest vocalist Gizelle Smith gained international respect, especially in France, Japan and the UK, where they were invited to a couple of live sessions on BBC radio.
Now the guys have returned with a brand new album on Legere Recordings, The Future Is Here, featuring collaborations with Su Kramer, Afrika Bambaataa, Charlie Funk & King Kamonzi.
