The Art Of Mestre Lourimbau is a Soundcloud playlist that my good friend Jody Gillett just turned me onto. She’s poised to jet off to Salvador and Recife for the next chapter in the UK vs Brasil Bass Culture Clash, arrives just in time for the Festa de Iemanja and is stoked at the idea of an encounter with this rootical berimbau master musician. Expect the unexpected…. it’s the perfect foil for this frosty zero degree London morning.
AND… you can check Mestre Lourimbau walking the streets at night, berimbau in hand, on this lovely little film.
