Rum & Coca Cola - Brazliian Mambo & Cha Cha (Ronaldo Evangelista, Veneno Soundsystem)

Rum & Coca Cola - Brazliian Mambo & Cha Cha (Ronaldo Evangelista, Veneno Soundsystem)

Veneno Soundsystem (made up of DJs Ronaldo Evangelista, Mauricio Fleury and Peba Tropikal) have been throwing itinerant parties and spreading good music in their native São Paulo for the past five years, exposing forgotten sounds from Brazil and South America. Main man Ronaldo Evanglista recently put together a great mix that shines a light on the Mambo craze that swept Brazil in the ’50s and early ’60s, vying with Samba and Bossa as the nation’s favourite dancing music. Drawn from old LPs, 45s and 78′s, take a trip into the Latin sound of Brazil….

Mambo is not a Brazilian rhythm. Brazilian people don’t speak spanish. Afrocuban percussion is different from the traditional macumba and samba ones in Brazil, but they have the same roots. If the whole world was going with the mambo craze in the 50s and learning its rhythm lessons for its own lexicons, surely in Brazil it was no different - check the lost world of Brazilian Latin, drawn from hard to find 45s, 10"s and LPs...
