Carimbolando Mixtape

This is a selection of mainly 70’s Carimbó, Siriá and other styles from Pará State in the North of Brazil. Carimbó is an Amazonian rhythm and dance style of indigenous origin which received influences from black (percussion and sensuality) and Portuguese (woodwinds) culture. The women dance barefooted with long, round and colorful skirts with floral prints. Due to its origin, the music and dance suffered repression by the government of Belém, capital of Pará, in the late 19th century being prohibited to be practiced. The most prominent Carimbó musicians are Mestre Verequete and Pinduca. The style became popular in the Northeast of Brazil (some songs in the selection) as well where it has been fused with Forró and other rhythms of that region of Brazil. Samba singer Eliana Pittman from Rio de Janeiro had a big hit with her song “Mistura de Carimbó” from 1975.
Carimbó is also one of the main influences of contemporary popular music styles such as Tecnobrega and Lambada. In recent years Carimbó had a comeback as it appeared prominently in a telenovela.
The newest Carimbó star is 88 years old Dona Onete who had a big success with her excellent album “Banzeiro” in 2016.
