With seven-figure sales in their native Brazil and a Latin Grammy under their belts, Tribalistas have become an “international priority” for EMI. Sadly, they’re not going to sell many records in insular little old Britain, if only because they sing entirely in Portuguese. Tribalistas is a one-off project and its three members?Marisa Monte, Carlinhos Brown and Arnaldo Antunes?are all major solo stars in Brazilian music. Together they’ve stepped outside the usual commercial dictates of their careers to make a relaxed acoustic album of laid-back and languid songs that sounds like a cross between Crosby, Stills & Nash and “The Girl From Ipanema”. It really is quite magical.
