On the video for the opening track to Márcio Local’s album Márcio Local Says, “Don Day Don Dree Don Don”: Adventures In Samba Soul, he takes us on the perfect trip through Brazil: beach-side bliss, Carnival, football, sunshine, sunsets, and the lush countryside.

Márcio Local stands at the crossroads of two great traditions in modern Brazilian music, with one foot in samba, the heavily percussive Afro-Brazilian dance music that took its modern form in the early twentieth century, and the other in soul, the African American music rooted in the blues that attracted a mass audience in Brazil in the 1960s and 1970s.

The album is out May 12th on Luaka Bop. More Info
