About this item
For number 84 in the Brazil 45 Series, we head to the North of Brazil with this dancefloor monster, double-sider by Magalhaes & Os Panteras. ‘Xang ‘ by Magalhaes is taken from his ‘E Sua Guitarra’ album, from 1986, and originally released on Gravasom Records.
A stunning, driving Lambada track with haunting vocals and a compelling gusto energy. It has been gaining popularity over recent years with DJs and is a surefire get-out-of-jail dancefloor saver.
On the flip, we find another biggy from Os Panteras, ‘Lambada Pauleira’. Also released on Gravasom Records, but a year later in 1987. It is best known for Joutro Mundo’s fine re-edit of the track, but here we have it in its original form, in all its quirky brilliance.
It is easy to see why, over the years, it has been a staple of some of Brazil’s finest DJs’ sets, such as Augusto Olivani (aka Trepanado). We are super happy to present these two red-hot tracks back-to-back. Now let the dancefloors return so we can heat things up!
Patrick says: Heavy double header of Lambada bangers on Mr Bongo's Brazil 45 series here. On the A-side 'Xang' is dance floor dynamite in the same vein as Massara's Margarita, while the B-side brings the infectious groove, frazzled synths and staccato guitar of Lambada Pauleri, which you may have heard via the Joutro Mundo edit.
