Chicanos in outer space Ocote Soul Sounds (a.k.a. Martin Perna from Antibalas) and Adrian Quesada (from Grupo Fantasma, Brownout or The Echocentrics have put out 3 fantastic, cornerstone albums of Afro-Latin music. A real blend between African grooves and Mexican/South American music that hasn't been achieved before or since.
Extracted from their second album from 2010, 'Vendendo Saúde e Fé' ('Selling Wealth and Faith', a Brazilian folk expression of hope and optimism) featuring Brazilian vocalist Tita Lima is a soul-tripping ballad with fuzzed-out guitar.
Here's Parisian producer Grant Phabao's take on this kaleidoscopic gem, adding some Jamaican grooves to the already unique formula, for a dazzling remix in psychedelic Afro-Brazilian Reggae style!
