New Album from Curumin – “Arrocha”

Curumin is a Brazilian artist who I’ve been following since his first album, “Achados E Perdidos.”  Brought up in the samba/bossa nova tradition, he adds into the mix hip-hop, funk, and electronic music to make for a really unique sound. His new album, “Arrocha,” takes all that to new heights, jumping around from hip-hop instrumentals (“Blimblim”) to bass-heavy dub (“Treme Terra”) to upbeat reggae (“Vestido de prata”) and back to some of his traditional samba/funk-rock sound (“Passarinho”).
