Due to the large amount of requests we have decided to repress Levanta Poeira for the second time (order here). We are still overwhelmed by the positive response coming from all parts of the globe. Besides receiving airplay and support from the likes of Mr. Scruff, Mafalda, Antal, Laurent Garnier or Harvey Sutherland, the record has been listed in The Vinyl Factory's "10 favourite reissues of 2018"!
For their first Afro-Brazilian compilation Jazz & Milk teamed up with Tahira, one of São Paulo’s most active DJs and music collectors. Levanta Poeira (Afro-Brazilian music & rhythms from 1976 – 2016) highlights a few of his favourite DJ pearls and encompasses Brazil’s various regional musical styles influenced by African and Amerindian forms.
While most foreign music lovers tend to approach Brazilian music by having American music genres such as Jazz, Soul, Funk, Disco as a reference, Tahira’s personal wish was to showcase the rich musical roots and facets of his country by featuring carefully selected artists and bands from the past 4 decades. Most of these tracks will be made available on vinyl for the very first time with a highlight certainly being Tahira’s “A Toda Menina Baiana” remix (vinyl-only) of one of Brazil’s absolute musical heroes, Gilberto Gil.
"...a refreshing, perspective-shifter that will doubtless become summer essentials for DJs across Europe."
