The nine-strong tower of Brazilian Afrobeat power from São Paulo that is Bixiga 70 hit a new peak on their fourth album. The title translates as ‘jigsaw puzzle’ and it’s an apt description as the different pieces of the collective’s trademark sound – powerful Fela Kuti-inspired rhythms with dashes of Ethio-jazz and dub laced with Latin jazz melodies and electronic twists – slot together brilliantly. A Top of the World in #143.
