The Golden Apples of the Sun Radio Show

Golden Apples of Brazil 3

El Ritmo presents ‘The Golden Apples of Brazil’.

Claude’s first ‘trip’ back since 2012. More psychedelic than Pernambuco with a schizophrenic collision of psychedelia, tropicalia and electronicalia – travel from Ipanema Beach to the Favelas to the mountains with earthly flutes and found sounds, mushrooms and marijuana soundscapes, and beats that you can dance to…

Dedicated to Suba who way back in 1999 inspired my interest in music from Brazil

You may know the story of Suba… its sad but also beautiful. In November 1999 he was about to become one of Brazil’s most prominent producers as his now-legendary album São Paulo Confessions had just been released when on November 2, around 5:30 a.m.smoke was detected coming from Suba’s combined apartment and studio, the building manager called on the intercom, and Suba, who had been sleeping, told him that he was unable to open his door. The manager battered down the door and found Suba on his feet, but disoriented, inside the burning studio. Amid the chaos that followed, Suba reentered his studio, to recover a small case containing the original audio files and back-ups (safety copies of computer files) of the new Bebel Gilberto album. Suba was overcome by smoke and taken to the emergency room but died from smoke asphyxiation.

He left us his music…
