Forget the 808--Tamborzão is the sound of Rio right now. Where most compilations and remixes that channeled funk carioca/baile funk to non-Brazilian audiences recent years have focused on Miami bass and freestyle electro-influenced beats, favela sound systems now pump a new, spooky and sample-heavy sound called Tamborzão (translation: really heavy drumbeat) across the city. It's got more indigenous Brazilian influences at the surface, along with eclectic sample stabs of everything from PC system sounds to Planet Patrol's "Cheap Thrills" and Woody Woodpecker cackles (Pica-Pau is his Portuguese name). This sound, as I was fortunate to experience it this spring in favelas like Arvore Seca and Cantagalo, is gunshots and flip-flops, soccer championships and drunken sambas... Rio in a nutshell.
