Mundo Melhor volume 1 (2018)

The label Mundo Melhor was born in 2004 with field recordings of Brazilian culture made by me and partners, according to the communities. This first compilation has 14 songs that show Brazil’s diversity, with traditions from the Northeast, Southeast and North regions of the country that reveal its indigenous, Africans, religious and playful elements. The compilation also has 3 songs of contemporary projects that dialogue with the traditions: DJ Tudo featuring legend singer José Tobias, Batucajé with Robertinho Silva and Projeto Cru of Simone Sou and Marcelo Monteiro. What unites all of them is the celebration of life. Welcome to a better world and good listening experience.
