About this item
Baiano & Os Novos Caetanos was a band formed by prolific and multitalented
Brazilian comedians Chico Anysio and Arnaud Rodrigues.
Satirising Brazil’s Tropicalia movement in the 1970s, the duo took a friendly
crack at the likes of Caetano Veloso and psychedelic rockers Novos Baianos,
with their righteous tropicalista alter-egos ‘Baiano’ and ‘Paulinho Boca de
Profeta’ poetically denouncing the dictatorship while simultaneously mocking
those who took themselves too seriously.
Jazz funk legends Azymuth play backing band with keyboard maestro Jose Roberto Bertrami also responsible for the arrangements on the album. Azymuth’s free and funky psych sounds combine with accordion, harmonica, brass and plenty of rural Brazilian rhythms, for a hugely varied album drawing on MPB, funk and soulful samba rock.
The album also features Orlandivo who co-wrote many of the songs, and renowned multi-instrumentalist and producer Durval Ferreira.
