DJ Tudo e Sua Gente de Todo Lugar - Gaia Musica Volume 2 (Selo Mundo Melhor, Brazil/ Marocco)

 GAIA MUSICA volume 2 is the latest albumfrom DJ Tudo e Sua Gente de Todo Lugar. It's a record that sees Brazil and Morocco connect in a powerful way. The idea of the record is to break stereotypes, provoke a new way of looking at the richness of Arabic culture, using knowledge and respect. Brazil and Morocco are “brother” countries and this brotherhood is present all over the record. You can find it in the Gnawa music and the Afro-Brazilian religions (umbanda and candomblé), as well as the way that the ijexá (afoxê) merges with the Sufi ritual music issawa.
