Some 20 years ago, one of the most important groups in Brazil launched its first
record: Da Lama ao Caos. The debut album by Chico Science & Nação Zumbi came out in April 1994. The album was a milestone brought about by a group of friends, that, by creating a new scene, kick-started a musical movement that ultimately destabilised the axis of musical production in Brazil. Like other Recife bands, their intent was express the sound of the local trait ‘crabs with brains’, or the ‘mud parabolics’, and everything else that people know, feel, or relate to with the Manguebeat sound. The difference is that this band, from the outskirts of Recife became known worldwide, far more than any other.
Thousands of steps and different places later, what was their leitmotiv now is in their essence. Today, the band evoke the Manguebeat but also bring other sounds to life, a harvest tilled for so many years. No wonder the Nação Zumbi is, until this day, one of the most influential and respected Brazilian bands ever.
