Mais Um Discos are thrilled to provide the worldwide release of Bixiga 70’s Ocupai - a heart stopping carnival of Afrobeat & Brazilian funk where Ethio-jazz, brass bands, polyrhythmic paeans, Bootsy Collins jams and Saharan grooves combine to produce a riotous joy of stomping rhythms and horns. Hailing from the Bixiga neighbourhood in São Paulo, Ocupai sees the band build on the sound that saw their self-titled debut album top many Brazilian tastemakers best of lists for 2011. They combine the obvious touch points of Fela Kuti (the band's name tips a hat to the most famous incarnation of his band) and Tony Allen (with whom Mauricio Fleury from the band studied with) and bounce through boundaries to harvest textures of mandingo from Guinea and Mali, soukous from the Congo and ethio-jazz – all the while pulling in threads from the pioneers who first caught their ear; Pedro Sorongo, Os Tincoãs, Gilberto Gil, João Donato, Baden Powell, Deodato, Orchestre Poly Rythmo, Miles Davis and Lee Perry. Having collaborated with Souljazz Orchestra, Criolo, Emicida and Banda Black Rio, the band have also shared the same stage as their heroes Antibalas, Ebo Taylor, Tony Allen, Gilberto Gil and Q-tip at the likes of Denmark’s Roskilde and Amsterdam’s Paradiso and are set to return to Europe in May/June 2014.
