Os Barbapapas

«Sound as soft as cotton candy and as malleable as the cult figure of the same name»

Imagine Fela Kuti jamming in an bar in a nameless, global metropolis with Martin Denny, but it is on glass harp… While this might sound like a sensationalist figment of an over-heated music journalist’s brain, it is not too far from what Os Barbapapas are able to achieve.
The band from the music metropolis of Sao Paulo is named after the iconic but weird cartoon series from the 1970s. And the band members are just as amorphous and shapeshifting as the characters in the series: they learned gnawa in Morocco, have performed in circuses and built various instruments of their own. On their new album, appropriately named Enigma, the original seed of Os Barbapapas' global underground vibes comes to full bloom.
