Nomade Orquestra return from the stratosphere via Brazil with their second offering: Entremundos ("Between Worlds"). Gazing outward through a kaleidoscope from the heart of Sao Paulo's jazz scene, the collective consciousness of the ten-man orquestra has dreamt up an adventurous amalgam of earth's most far reaching musical cultures. Recorded at Red Bull Studios, Sao Paulo, Entremundos is like a cosmic musical playground where Ethio-jazz, Indian classical, and Oriental sounds dance around Afro-Brazilian roots rhythms and Northern hemisphere jazz, funk, soul, library music, and hip-hop influences. The sheer vastness of the album is astounding, Nomade Orquestra have quite literally conquered the world in sound. Nomade Orquestra are some of the most accomplished musicians in their city. They're also avid record collectors, citing the coming-together of their expansive musical knowledges as key to their unique sound. Album opener "Jardim De Zaira" -- a tribute to the neighborhood on the outskirts of the famous ABC region, where the band meet and rehearse -- hosts a playful unison of vibraphone, guitar, horns, and keyboards reminiscent of Stereolab's funkiest late '90s output. "Felag Mengu" lies somewhere between the groovy, brooding Ethio-jazz of Mulatu Astatke and Tinariwen's hazy desert rock, and "Olho Do Tempo" is another enchanting incarnation of the band's impossible to define brand of global roots music. The album's wildest moment comes from the roaring off-road, big-band joy-ride "Rinoceronte Blues" with hillbilly harmonica, soulful organ stabs, and soaring horn arrangements, further highlighting the depths of Nomade Orquestra's endless span of influences. With Gilles Peterson singing their praise and rave reviews from the likes of Wax Poetics, Record Collector, and Songlines, Nomade Orquestra's self-titled debut album (FARO 189CD/LP, 2015) launched them from their humble beginnings to international recognition. They also embarked on their first tour outside of Brazil. CD version comes in a jewel case.
