Maracatu Atomico

With my upcoming trip to Hawaii approaching this week, it's safe to say that I'm feeling a bit "tropical". To help compliment my current mood, here is the left-field Brazilian gem "Maracatu Atômico" by one of Brazil's most notable artists in Gilberto Gil. This funky track was featured on Gil's 1979 album Nightingale. It may also be worthy to note that a solid re-edit of this track, put together by Lucci Capri, was recently included on the fifth volume of the superb Messalina re-edit series. Overall, just another funky tropical gem from one of Brazil's greatest musicians. Enjoy!
