We recorded a shit-ton of Brazilian percussion in the studio yesterday. And man, was it glorious. Couldn’t get to sleep for hours, I was so pumped.
As well as putting percussion on the track, after the track finishes, we laid down a party version with just Brazil perc madness on its own. Sounds amazing.
Thanks so much to Mark Grunden and Dave Hall for sparing your Sunday arvo to generously give your time to this track. Can’t wait to hear it mixed, and to play with you guys again at the launch.
This is Mark playing the cuica (Brazilian monkey drum) with engineer Tristan Ludowyk setting up the sound.
More tracking tomorrow, BVs, djembe, cello and Mbira (African thumb-piano)
Over and out for now,
