Jorge Ben can do it all - vocalist, songwriter, musician, producer and to many their ‘all-round’ favourite Brazilian artist. Jorge has had an amazing career, involved in music from the early 60s through to the current day, writing countless classic songs for him and other artists. This awesome samba-disco-funk joint Waimea 55.000 is a lesser-known production, taken off a 7” B-side released on Som Livre in 1978. This is a gem which needed to be dusted off and given the wider audience it deserves. Baby Consuelo with her distinctive voice is one of Mr Bongo’s favourite Brazilian singers. Here we have Baby at the start in raw psychedelic hippy mode, giving a powerful vocal delivery where she manages to sound both badass and lovable.
