Forrível by Satanique Samba Trio

F O R R Í V E L – Halloween / Dia das Bruxas special

After 10 albums dedicated to the aesthetical disassembling of Brazilian music’s most recurrent clichés, Satanique Samba Trio aims its ongoing research at a new formula for musical fuckery: the artificial combination between forró, the popular Brazilian groovy rhythm and horror synth, the not-so-popular music genre extracted from old keyboard-ridden horror film scores.

Think of what would happen if the most syncopated of all Brazilian folk rhythms incorporated a bunch of obsolete-but-nowadays-trendy giallo soundtrack tropes.
Mathematically speaking, forró + horror synth = forrór synth. And that is where Forrível is coming from.

Well, enough of homework. It’s Halloween once again (or Dia das Bruxas – Witches Day, as we know it here) – and it’s raining in Brazil. As we are slowly descending into another global lockdown, here some soundtrack sounds for these dark times.
