Brazil, 2016, jazz-rock / vanguarda paulista
Metá Metá – MM3: This is my first brush with the vanguarda paulista genre, “a Brazilian cultural movement that began in the city of São Paulo and lasted from 1979 to 1985. It united artists of various musical styles who had no access to the established major labels due to their experimental, avant-garde approach” (RYM). I know I’m late to the party, but this album was the gateway for me into the genre I’ve been exploring back to 1979 with Grupo Um’s Marcha sobre a cidade. I dig the all-embracing energy inherent in this music.
