It was real fun to be a part of this one day carnaval craze. I duno exaclty but i think 150 bands , 10 stages or so, comedy stages, dj stages , all done in down town Sao Paulo within 24 hours. So it still goes on as we speak... amazing event, really .
We totally went for it in a 1 hour set as Love Trio (Kenny Wollesen, Albereto Continentino and I) and guests Lucio Maia from the band Nacao Zumbi and Lone Ranger (steppin in for a sick U-roy, but he is feelin better now). B Negao one of Brazil's best vocalist /rapper came on in floating on a dubby song with us . And so did Taylor McFerrin . He gave a cool intro. to a song which is more in a housy mode rather then dubby . Well maybe psychadelic , or rocky . I guess it's the Nublu sound....
Skatalites played before us. And after our show, we moved on to Sesc Pompeia , where we had our Nubu jazzfest this past October. Some friends were playing there in a tribute band that plays all Tim Maia music. It's an all star band led by producer and great music man in general , Ganjaman . The band has also Boca on guitar, Nublu girl Thalma de Freitas on vocals, Bnegao and a few other groovy musicians. They sounded real great .
