Madlib talks about his love of Brazilian music.
Red Bull Music Academy will host a new Fireside Chat with Madlib tomorrow, July 22, as part of their recent LA takeover. To go alongside, they’ve shared a new short documentary focusing on the producer’s love of Brazilian music.
In the clip he recounts his introduction to Brazilian music and talks about the thrill of eventually recording with some of the musicians who inspired him. It also features interviews with friends and fellow fans of the music including Joel Stones (owner of cult NYC record store Tropicalia In Furs) and longtime collaborator Egon.
Watch it below and stay tuned for Madlib’s Fireside Chat tomorrow 9am PST.
