Satanique Samba Trio at Bimhuis
Dazzling collage of styles by Brazilian underground phenomenon (confusingly enough, not an actual trio). ‘They take traditional Brazilian music forms and turn them on their head’ (Beatmag).
The name might suggest otherwise, but the Satanique Samba Trio is nothing like a samba trio. The five-piece formation from Brasília takes the clichés of samba, bossa nova and other Brazilian styles and severely deconstructs them into eccentric music that draws comparisons with musical dissidents such as Captain Beefheart and Os Mutantes. The band, which includes a bass clarinet player, gained cult status with their many performances, supporting Tom Zé and Naná Vasconcelos for example. In the past 15 years they have released albums with appropriate titles such as Misantropicalia and Bad Trip Simulator.
‘The delve deep into the Brazilian roots, chopping them to pieces and reassembling the pieces into something that Captain Beefheart would have sounded like were he from Brazil’ (Gonzo Circus).
