Siba e a Fuloresta
Siba e a Fuloresta
As Siba puts it: “We've never experienced our past or tradition as a cage. On the contrary, our tradition offers us a vast vocabulary, and we do our best to use all of it every day and specially all night long. It is impossible to replicate the way we involve the whole community in poetry and collective dancing during the whole night, although the hour- or 90-minute-long sets we play in festivals provide a very good opportunity to catch a glimpse of our actual musical impact”. “Toda vez que eu dou um passo / O mundo sai do lugar” (Ambulante Discos) is the sophomore effort from Siba and the Fuloresta: straight-to-the-point lyrics and strong poetry, cirandas, cocos-de-roda and frevos mixed up with dubwise effects, electric guitar and pianos, and a beautiful brass section playing clever arrangements, along with very special guests Céu, Beto Villares, Marcelo Pretto, Fernando Catatau, Isaar França and ciranda poet Zé Galdino. An album with an unexpected cosmopolitan tone, reaching far beyond the boundaries between popular culture and pop music, oral poetry and literature, and the contrast betwixt tradition and modernity. One of the most recognizable achivements of Siba's journey through supposedly distinct worlds is his recent partnership with the São Paulo graffitti duo “OsGemeos” (pairs), responsible for both the CD artwork and the live concert backdrops on the DVD (to be released in 2008).
