Os Mutantes+M.A.K.U. Soundsystem
In 2006, following a three-decade hiatus, the house band of Brazil's Tropicália movement returned to studio and stage sounding nearly as freaky as ever. Sole original Mutante Sérgio Dias leads the reformed edition, which seems to celebrate a world going to hell with romance and wit. Queens-based MAKU Soundsystem mixes Afro-Colombian styles like champeta and porro brass band music with post-punk jazz reminiscent of horn-heavy '80s British groups like Pigbag.
