Batucada Sound Machine
Post a Comment
- Kiwi-Brazilian samba, funk hiphop outfit
- Me, Myself, and I
- Loosely translated, Batucada means percussive samba jam. Throw in two guitars, bass, keyboard, a slick horn section and one of the Pacific's finest MCs, and you have Batucada Sound Machine. The 13 piece group has evolved from the impromptu “batucada” sessions back in 2003 to become one of NZ's most sought after acts. Their tasty concoction of and Brazilian, Cuban and afro-beat rhythms is given a hip hop front courtesy of MC Hazaduz (Che Fu & the Krates) . This kingpin of the rising local hip hop scene lays solid rhymes over the massive samba-reggae percussion while the talented band adds rich pacific soul, reggae and funk flavours.
