Hidden Waters is our homage to a Rio de Janeiro music scene that has been bursting with creativity and camaraderie over the past decade. Centred around a pool of artists, poets, and musical innovators who flow between collaborative works and individual passion projects, this scene’s collective power has prompted a sea-change within carioca counterculture. Reclaiming derelict spaces and dissident sounds, they are now making ripples tantamount to musical revolution, finding admirers across the waters in the New York Times, The Wire and even at the Latin Grammys.

Theirs is the sound of contemporary Rio, marked by a hybridity that pools the popular and avant-garde, the cutting-edge and carnal, with echoes of everything from Tropicália, samba, disco and Candomblé to lo-fi rock, jazz, bossa nova and experimental electronics. - Mr Bongo
