THE ROUGH GUIDE TO SAMBA
Cartola, Paulo Moura, Moacyr Luz, Monarco, Nelson Sargento, Jards Macalˆm, etc.
The Rough Guide To Samba brings us carnival fever from the Brazilian streets. A blend of African beats and Portuguese guitars first created the samba rhythm and by the 1920s and the creation of the distinctive surdo drum, the samba schools ruled the Rio carnival. This Rough Guide is a vibrant introduction to the legendary rhythm of the Brazilian carnival and the nightclubs of Rio. This album presents big names with the new generation of samba stars who are keeping the rhythms alive.
