He almost convinced me to break the UWR codex of no albums..
I asked Farrapo what inpired him to do this album: The principal inspiration for our album is it simply brasilian music, that is it so rich with many different styles. In particolar you can listen the influences from north est of Brasil. We mixed brasilian regional styles with urban electronic sounds and rhythms, trying to keep an organic groove.
Knowing Farrapo, you know he has a thing for cooking, just check this video by Tele Cocina from his visit in Copenhagen last year.
Tele Cocina - Carbonara pra Tele Cocina from Thim Steen Jensen on Vimeo.
So it felt natural also to ask him what dish he would be cooking to Alien Na Favela: ehhe ..... music and food are two big passions for me and in several of the tracks I've produce you can find connection to the food. For Alien Na Favela I would cook a typical "fejoada" but using some "guanciale", that could rapresent the alien inside the favela.
Fejoada - "Brazillian Bean Stew"
Do check his mix of the album and his EP on UrbanWorld. Both fantastic releases.
