Marcio Local – “Soul Do Samba”
Take equal parts soul and samba, do a hip-hop en español thing over it, and then rock it out like Santana. And you can kinda imagine what’s goin’ down here. Now that I have this track, it’s impossible not play it at my next party. What wonderful, joyous music. It’s discoveries like this that make it necessary for me to blog.
