You know the drill! It’s Free Basin’ Friday! We’re here to hook you up with some fresh wax before you head off into weekend oblivion. In the spirit of all the Bossa Nova in the air around here, this week we’re dishing out a copy of Orlandivo’s self titled 1977 LP, Orlandivo!
Composer, singer and percussionist Orlann Divo moved to Rio de Janeiro in 1946 where he started out as a promising percussionist in the band of Ed Lincoln.
In 1977 he released this self-titled work on Copacobana records. The album mainly remains in the Bossa Nova realm, while at the time of the release the Bossa Nova era was almost at its end. Unfortunately the album gained little notice, but was revived 20 years later by diggers around the world. To many record collectors and Brazilian music lovers around the globe this remains a true classic from the vaults of Brasilian Bossa and downtempo Samba.
Now 25 years after its original release Kindred Spirits presents the official reissue of the 1977 self-titled album Orlandivo. This beautiful bossa / downtempo samba like album contains the sought after tracks such as ‘Onde Anda O Meu Amor’ and ‘Tamanco No Samba’. Apart from Orlandivo, other artists such as João Donato and Azymuth’s drummer Ivan Conti also deliver a solid contribution to the tracks, making this obscure Brasilian classic a must have for Brasilian music lovers!
