Metá Metá's sophomore album and debut for Mais Um Discos MetaL MetaL launches itself from the ancient chants of the orixás into a dirty brew of psychedelic samba, distorted jazz and Afro-punk. The band is formed from a trio of São Paulo's most sought-after musicians -- vocalist Juçara Marçal, saxophonist Thiago França and guitarist Kiko Dinucci -- and features Afrobeat legend Tony Allen. Followers of the Afro-Brazilian religion Candomblé, Marçal, França and Dinucci mix these spiritual and rhythmic foundations with influences ranging from Afrobeat to Afrosambas, punk rock to be-bop to create chaotic, effervescent music that explodes with the rage of The Stooges and Sonic Youth, the spirituality of John Coltrane and Sun Ra and the wild, avant-garde instrumentation of contemporary experimental jazz outfits such as Melt Yourself Down and Polar Bear.
