MARCH 2018

Levanta Poeira - Afro​-​Brazilian music & rhythms from 1976 – 2016 (compiled by Tahira) (Jazz & Milk)

Dj Tahira, DJ, crate digger & producer from Brazil is best known for his extensive knowledge of Afro-Brazilian music and numerous edits and remixes of Brazilian music. For the German label Jazz&Milk, Tahira compiled a couple of his personal favorites Afro-Brazilian cuts. These tracks, spanning over 4 decades, were championed by Tahira in his sets and podcast, including the ones he makes for Groovalizacion Radio. The selection includes some rare and hard to find tracks and also Tahira’s exclusive own killer remix of Gilberto Gil’s A Toda Menina Baiana. Good news for vinyl collectors: these tracks are now (most for the first time) properly released on the compilation Levanta Poeira.
