2003 release. Sampa is what the 12 million people of São Paulo call their city. Beneath the ultra-modern skylines stretching into the favelas there's a clash of cultures like nowhere else in the world and a vibrant, multifaceted music scene to go with it. Sampa is where Tom Zé, the subversive leader of the Tropicália movement in the 1960s and '70s, chose to live and work after he got bored with Rio de Janeiro, and where Fernanda Porto went to study music and stayed. It's where bands like Nação Zumbi, singer-songwriters like Otto, and other young iconoclasts from the farthest reaches of Brazil landed when they were ready to make it in the big city. It's where innovative DJs like XRS Land, Anvil FX, and DJ Dolores came to hone their chops, and where the ingenious sound-artist Suba discovered Cibelle and produced Bebel Gilberto's global breakthrough Tanto Tempo (2000), released not long before he died tragically in a studio fire. Sampa Nova captures the hard-edged energy and avant-garde vibe of 21st-century São Paulo but also that distinctly Brazilian feeling of alegria -- love of life. Features: Suba, Cibelle, Tom Zé, Otto, Drumagic, DJ Dolores, Nação Zumbi, XRS Land, Fernanda Porto, Jair Oliveira, Max De Castro, Bojo, Anvil FX, and Edu H.
