ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Question: Could artists from different countries, different continents, and different cultural and professional backgrounds collaborate to create different music? A form of music without borders, without labels, without genres? Is this possible?

BUCCIMAZZA, a collection of interrelated projects by a diverse group of musicians from Africa, Europe, the Near East, and North America, attempts to answer that question. An amalgamation of an enormous range of musical styles, from Minimalist Classical to Portuguese Fado to Hip-Hop to Electro-Rock, BUCCIMAZZA has, somewhat fortuitously, created a unique form of global hybrid art. Drawing upon a rich variety of languages, cultures, and performance styles, BUCCIMAZZA spouts the ineffable "Dada-groove."

The BUCCIMAZZA movement began in the eerie, castled hills of Sintra, Portugal--where the simple desire between friends from diverse cultures to play music together, grew into the need to explore, question and experiment with music.

In 1998 BUCCIMAZZA's first project, "Passage," explored haunting electronic atmospheres driven by rock guitars and African rhythms. BILL "HAMBURGLER" HASSELBERGER (TURKEY/USA) programmed synthesizers and played guitar. LITO MOCCO (ANGOLA) programmed drum machines and sang backing vocals. NASTIO MOSQUITO (ANGOLA) wrote lyrics and sang main vocals. The three would meet late at night after school, and over a bottle of wine and philosophical discussion, would fuse their thoughts and sounds together.

By 1999 BUCCIMAZZA recorded a raw afro-electro-groove experiment entitled "Passage: Drowning In Our Own False Depth." BUCCIMAZZA quickly gained three new members: BIRU (GUINEA/PORTUGAL) brought urban energy with hip-hop rhymes, DANIEL FIRMINO (PORTUGAL) introduced voodoo vibes with flutes and vocal percussion, and JOAO PEDRO PIRES (PORTUGAL) grooved on djambes, congas and even everyday objects such as paint cans, radiators, and industrial pipes!

With this new mix, BUCCIMAZZA explored more aggressive rhythms and chaotic environments--in line with the band's conceptual move towards Dadaist aesthetics of the strange and absurd. Gigs at rowdy house parties and venues in Lisbon soon followed. BUCCIMAZZA began developing a dramatic, theatre-of-the-absurd performance style that is one of its most unique characteristics today.

In 2000, BUCCIMAZZA began another intercontinental collaboration, this time with two Californian Hip-Hop MC's/producers, EXISTEREO and INNASPACE (from "THE SHAPE SHIFTERS" and "WHYKNOWS") spawning the abstract hip-hop fusion "The Collective." In this innovative Electro Hip-Hop guise, BUCCIMAZZA entered a fruitful period of song-writing and frequent live performances across Portugal, the USA, and the UK. This project was also marked by diverse studio and stage collaborations with jazz and rock musicians.

At the end of 2004, strengthened by new creative forces in the band--Adriano-X (drums and percussion), Rebecca Jakob (Vocals), and Dada-Joe (guitar)--BUCCIMAZZA gave the world its first full-length professional release: "73147", a culmination of years of impassioned and laborious composition and recording. More than an eclectic and mysterious journey through soothing Electro, driving Rock, wild Hip-Hop, Blues, and bizarre Ambient Noise, the album is a journey of ideas and perspectives. "73147" tells strange stories of twisted international intrigue, chaos, hamburgers, Existential Angst, fish-smuggling, traffic jams, and glorious moments of pure absurdity. It is simultaneously shallow and deep, fickle and philosophical, ridiculous and serious.

Recorded in numerous dimly-lit living rooms-turned-studios from Miami Florida, to Glasgow Scotland, from Washington D.C., to Lisbon Portugal, "73147" is an important artistic exploration for those who wish to move beyond national borders, traditional cultural labels, and musical genres. Give it a spin.

In the summer of 2005, BUCCIMAZZA began an adventurous crusade through Western Europe to spread the word of "73147." Fantastically bizarre and wildly energetic shows were given in GLASGOW, SCOTLAND at notorious venues such as the "Edge Club", the "Halt Bar", and the "Spirit Bar"; in LONDON, ENGLAND at the cathedral-turned electro-dancehall the "Bug Bar"; in LISBON, PORTUGAL at the waterfront "Opart" discotheque, the "Guillerme Cosoul" theater, and the beautiful gun-powder factory-turned art center "Fabrica da Polvora"; and in SALZBURG AUSTRIA at the 10-day "SCHMIEDE" festival of multimedia culture, sharing the stage with acts such as "iWolf" (Sofa Surfers), "Tom Middleton", "DK", and "Vegas".

Throughout the fall 2005 and spring 2006, BUCCIMAZZA composed and recorded lush, groovy, and atmospheric soundtracks for two experimental independent films: “Ringdemption” (a twisted and visually arresting macabre comedy, shot in Glasgow Scotland, by the Angolan filmmaker Carlos Andrade), and “The Parable of the Juicy Raisin” (an enigmatic absurdist anti-“thriller”, shot in weirdo Amsterdam, by the filmmaker Hazard Gibson).

Now, with "73147" playing on radio stations in the US ("WVUM" Radio, Miami), FRANCE ("Hypnotik/Athreed" radio), SCOTLAND ("Sub-City" Radio), PORTUGAL ("Oxigenio" Radio), and ON-LINE ("eoRadio" and “Artistopia” radio), BUCCIMAZZA is finishing work on its next album: a more sweeping, cinematic, and atmospheric multinational dada-groove-experiment...Think 1970’s sex-thriller-soundtrack meets fuzz-box electronica-rockers eating platters of fresh sardines at a secret location on the Portuguese coastline. Know what I mean?

KEEP YOUR EYES PEELED FOR BUCCIMAZZA LIVE IN EUROPE THIS SUMMER 2006!!!

Lucia from Germany

very SPICEY!
It is a wild ride full of surprise! I like very much the 'Trashman,' with the funny rhymes which have a message too. Cool mixture with the slower, more acoustic vibes and then the harder, more electronic or heavy guitars stuff.

Buccimazza is one of most international projects out now. It has Portuguese guys and Angolan guys and American guys, so it has totally different kinds of atmosfere. Some hiphop stuff with powerful beats, some smooth stuff, some funny parts. Here in Portgual it must be the most experimental project now. If you like other kind of music with hiphop just hear this cd, is really cool.

I heard this album at a freinds house..its one of the craziest albums Ive ever heard. The first track is all smooth and jazzy with deep sexy vocals, then it goes all electro funky, then acoustic, hiphop, hardrock, blah blah blah. Very cool. The best was called Trashman, with Innaspace on it, just dope, plain and simple...I also dig the Portuguese rappers and singers. its great to hear hiphop that is willing to be lighthearted and eccentric once in a while and mix with other stlyes.
