The Love Movement.



Here is another favorite, may we introduce you to Copa 7, and their 1979 debut LP “O Som do Copa 7,” a hard find even in Brazil.  Top Tape is the label here, as it was on the recently reported “Festa do Macoco,” also released in 79.  Copa 7 comes straight from the American funk infused Black Rio Movement, which included super funky groups like Banda Black Rio, Brasil Show and União Black.  Though the music is heavy some mellow cuts keep the mood balanced and versatille enough to play at any junction.  Still not sold?  Imagine throwing American funk legends like James Brown and the Meters in the blender with the post-bossa nova likes of Tim Maia and Jorge Ben.  We’ve been bumpin’ this one for awhile and were sure once you here it you will too.
