Huge samba funk classic from Brazil! Mega hard to find nowadays...This album holds loads of bangers and is true classic! Welcome reissue. Tip!Banda Black Rio's Maria Fumaca is one of the strongest Brazilian samba-disco-funk-soul-fusion albums of all time.
Banda Black Rio were formed in 1976 by the late Oberdan Magalhï¿½es in Rio de Janeiro. They revolutionised black instrumental music at the time with their Brazilian re-interpretation of soul, jazz, funk and disco grooves, inspired by the likes of Tim Maia and reminiscent of Kool & The Gang and Earth Wind & Fire during their most on-point period of the 1970's. Maria Fumaca is the groups first album, originally released by Atlantic in 1977; a record that bought the group worldwide fame.
