Over a year in the making, featuring 22 fully mastered funk carioca bangers and 17 artists, Pancadao has been a labor of love. After some missteps with our first release we set out to put a quality CD with more information and a more equitable business arrangement than previously associated with funk carioca compilations. We worked with Greg Scruggs who met with each of the artists, found a lawyer to develop a contract in Portuguese. From there we gathered bios and lyrics for each songs and thanks largely to the good people at Two Brothers (Instituto dos Irmaos) in Rocinha we also have translations. The CD opens up accordion fashion and features 2 booklets with nearly 80 pages of pictures, bios, lyrics and introductions.
