Legends of the Batteria

If you haven't yet heard the fantastic new album Legends of the Preacher by Nation Beat, head on over to their website, where you can download three complete tracks by filling out a simple form (which I assume will subscribe you to the band's newsletter). The songs are "Nago Nago," "I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry" (no kidding!) and "A Vida Tava Tao Bao."Nation Beat - Legends of the Preacher - on SoundRoots.org

I'll scribble a more complete review of the album shortly, but you should note that not among these free tracks are the three tracks on the album that feature The Klezmatics. Yes, Brazil meets klezmer, and it works for me.

Once you've checked out the free tracks, fergoshsake buy the album; 10% of the proceeds go to Corpos Percussivos (video), which helps the kids of Racife, Brazil with arts, culture, and educational programs.
