Vamos Sambar! Hugo Mendez

 

A nod to the world cup with one of the mixes given out at our warehouse parties back in 2006 – a selection of Soulful Samba grooves, perfect soundtrack for a summer’s day! Taking in the Soul of Tim Maia, the afro-bossa of Os Tinçoas and Os Ipanemas and the big band sound of Sonia Santos – listen and enjoy!
