Batucada Sound Machine / Press

“BSM are incontrovertible proof that the cutting edge of Latin music has reached the Antipodes.”

Nige Tassel - WOMAD

“The sound BSM make is massive, Their high-energy gigs take in a breathtaking variety of tempos, timings, beats, styles and rhymes. They sing in Portuguese, Spanish and English and have drawn favourable comparisons with Ozomatli, Manu Chao and Chico Science.”

Claire Prentice - Scotland on Sunday

“This debut... with its related funk family of samba, hip-hop, salsa and dub – all the time laced with a Brazilian spice – should propel the Batucada Sound Machine to where they belong; in the spotlight.”

Peter Thornton - Ripitup Magazine
