Big Ben

Back to the sunny sounds of Brasil now, with the spotlight on Jorge Ben. A Tábua De Esmeralda ('74) and África Brasil ('76) are my fave albums by the giant from Rio, so here's a smooth but funky track from each. Tastes like the tropics, folks.

Jorge Ben - Os Alquimistas Estão Chegando Os Alquimistas
Jorge Ben - Meus Filhos, Meu Tesouro
