Azymuth, from the 70’s funk fusion era in Brazil, brings such a strong groove and harmony that it’s hard to believe it’s only a trio. The song starts with a simple - but unbelievably groovy - organ line, and it gradually and mysteriously builds until the end.
Listening to the call of the cuica, funky samba bass and drums, and enticing organ pads, we can’t help but be fully immersed in the groove by the end.
