Ten years have passed since the phenomenal success of the „Paz e Futebol“ (SK089CD / LP) compilation, released on Sonar Kollektiv. Since then Germany went on to win the Football World Cup in Brazil, sparking an increased self-confidence, and maybe inspiring the Berlin musical institution Jazzanova to compile again a courageously eclectic showcase of Brazilian music, in all its facets and peculiarities. “Paz e Futebol 2” is the ultimate smorgasbord of all Brazilian music, irrespective of era and location, sporting the true and heartfelt Brazilian vibe. Similar to the football Brazil is known for, where “Brazilian style of playing” means an extra technically ability and finesse, but also an unmatched approach and skill within the sport. This affinity with skill is shown with this expertly curated 19-track-strong compilation.
