Bemba Trio

Formed by Russo Passapusso, Fael 1st and DJ Root. BEMBA TRIO incorporates the diversity and cultural authenticity of the peripheral culture of Bahia state in its melodies, performances and language. The vocalists emphasize on a spoken style valuing stories, regional accents and words in their lyrics and interpretations.
The Selector, responsible for the beats and instrumental basis, uses tones and effects known from the dynamics of sound systems.
The research mixes a wide range of global and local rhythms like Samba Reggae, Samba chula, Ragga, Repente, Miami Bass among other rhythms of the periphery.

You can download some tunes on their Soundcloud page:
