Batuca Band - Space Contact (LP)

40.00 / On Sale

The mysterious Batuca Band was a mixed group of Swedish and latino musicians of unknown origin (possibly Brazilian or Cuban) who released this album in 1978 and then seemingly disappeared.
The fierce percussive force behind almost each track makes for a headstrong experience of influences. The base of it all is a very western idea of disco & funk, leaning both towards Swedish jazz-soul in the vein of Doris (on "Music Is Life") as well as the cosmic-flavoured euro-sleeze that came out of Munich during this time (as evident on "Space Contact").
