About this item
New Parisian label, Disques Messager aims to present rarities and sought-after gems of the international rare groove scene. A mission which begins rather well, with the official reissue of these two stirring titles by Brazilian singer and composer Cristina Camargo.
Native of Rio De Janeiro, Cristina Camargo had quite a short career, releasing only 2 albums in 1980 and 1981, but still enough to collaborate with some of the best composers, musicians and producers at that time. Her first self-titled album was therefore produced by Robson Jorge & Lincoln Oliveti and recorded with some of the finest musicians.
“Moral Tem Hora” comes from this same LP and is a perfect example of the unique alchemy that emerged when disco and boogie invaded the Brazilian music scene. A rare and irresistible boogle-disco killer, composed by famous brothers, Marcos and Paulo Sérgio Valle and containing a clever arrangement which keeps you hooked till the very end.
On side B comes “Minas Do Rei Salomão”, a more chilled-out title extracted from Cristina’s 2nd album, “Santa Maravilha”. With its funky slapped bass, airy keyboards and the sweet vocals of Cristina, the song seems made to sip a nice cocktail at Ipanema.
Matt says: Effortless glory from this lesser known Brazilian star. Perfect for sauntering around without a care in the world when you're on your jolly bobs.
