Brazil is home to some of the tastiest sounds in the world. The country has a rich musical history and booming modern scene. Brazilian music has been sampled to make countless hip hop classics by cats like Madlib, Nujabes, MF DOOM, and way more.
Recently San Diego beatmaker AbJo dropped a beat tape called ‘Obrigado!’ (‘Thank You’ in Portuguese), inspired by Brazilian music featuring hard-hitting percussion and jazzy laid back grooves.
Check the video by ElFamosoDemon to get a feel for it and then check out the album. There are definitely some great tracks on ‘Obrigado!’ so kick back and enjoy!
