ZUCO 103

It’s 2016 and Zuco 103 is back with a gorgeous new album – 12 songs which go by the proud name “Etno Chic”. Ever since their first smash release „Outro Lado“ (1999) Zuco 103 is internationally known and loved for their original Brazilectro sound. The Zuco 103 sound has travelled the world, from Tokyo and Moscow to South America and back again, all around the indie hot spots of the European Cosmopolis. “Etno Chic” and their new live set packs a powerful punch of old skool electrosamba, warped funk and a dash of melancholy mood enhancement.

“Zuco 103’s Brazilian singer, Lilian Veira, with a Dutch drummer and a German keyboardist, floats her velvety voice above lean sampled backdrops that lace acid jazz with touches of Brazilian drumming.”

To call this a comeback would be a huge understatement: the Zuco 103 sound never left the building. In between live acoustics and weird but oh so funky electro sounds, Zuco 103 remains centerstage – a force to be reckoned with. The Zuco 103 triumvirate holds no prisoners and remains the most effective Afro-Electrical-Samba rhythm unit around. From the Brazilian North-East to the urban centers of this troubled world – the Zuco 103 hybrid is simply irresistible, a neo-tropicalismo tale, full of wit, soul and energy.
