2002 release. DJ Dolores (Helder Aragão) made his name in the febrile yet fecund "mangue beat" scene in the northeastern Brazilian city of Recifé in the '90s, composing theatrical and film music as well as DJing. For his aptly titled debut album, Contraditório?, he teamed with Orchestra Santa Massa, integrating his laptop with rustic folk instruments like rabeca fiddles and maracatu drums. The resulting album, which David Byrne called "great" and RootsWorld described as "a field recording made in a space station," went on to win a BBC World Music Award.
