AnotherÂ guest post by Maga Bo:Â DJ, producer, and co-founder ofÂ KafundÃ³ Records. In this post he gives us a little background on NeguedmundoÂ whoseÂ trackÂ â€œToca AÃâ€ Â appears onÂ theÂ KafundÃ³ Vol. 1Â Compilation.Â
Born in Natal, Rio Grande do Norte and now based in SÃ£o Paulo, Neguedmundoâ€™s work is a mix of dub, global bass, hip-hop, dub and afro-beat with northeast brazilian music – coco, ciranda, forrÃ³ and samba cabula. His lyrics focus on the roots of afro-brazilian identity, freedom and a concern with creating a better world for all.
A prolific collaborator, he has worked or performed with virtually all of the well-known sound systems around Brazil as MC and toaster. His first album, â€œMÃºsica de Preto,â€ a collaborative production by him, Gabriel Solto and Buguinha Dub, was released in 2007. Since then, his focus has been on live performances – both as an MC in the context of sound system culture, but also with live bands.
