ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Led by the enchanting voice, direction and performance of Aline Morales, Nunca Antes is a percussion and performance troupe that primarily plays the music of the Maracatu Nations of Recife, Brasil. Their greatest school of influence is Maracatu Estrela Brilhante de Recife, yet various groups and traditions also inspire our approach, the maracatus, afoxés and côcos of North East Brazil complemented with their own homegrown styles and sensibilities. In a multi-cultural world, Nunca Antes’ brings their raw energy and acoustic dub to the city streets. Aline Morales, native brazilian and from a family of performers, has been at the forefront of Nunca Antes’ percussion since their beginning in late 2002. Community-oriented and artistically focused they are a living sound system, manifesting themselves through song, rhythm, beat, movement and excitement.

Nick Storring in his blog “End of World Music” writes: “It is at once taut and loose, fearsome and fierce yet sensuous and effusive, militaristic yet celebratory, even (dare I say) simple and direct yet complex... Experienced live it's like a cross between the apocalypse and losing your virginity”.

The Beat Migration
I really loved that CD! What is really exciting in Nunca Antes music is the way they embody the sound of traditional maracatus and give it a soft twist to create something new, something refreshing, sometimes complex but always groovy! Tradition is alive and its migration has just begun!

Fabio Maciel

simple and strong.
Very strong and powerfull, yet simple and full of tradition. "Baque Novo Velha Nação" made me remember Mestre Walter... the variation on the drums... the singing...Congratulation to Aline Morales and Nunca Antes.

For any fan of samba, regardless of style, The Beat Migration is an absolute must. This troupe primarily focuses on the music of the Maracatu nations of Recife, Brazil. While their greatest school of influence is Maracatu Estrela Brilhante de Recife, various groups and traditions also inspire their approach. Full of bone-rattling rhythms and enough festive energy to throw your own living room Carnaval, the generous 16 tracks on this disc travel the samba spectrum from the lumbering and thunderous to the nimble and buoyant. Their variety and versatility is not without notice, particularly due to their adeptness at every song they approach. This is simply one of the best Brazilian projects we've seen yet.
