Waxpoetics Issue 36 - Gilberto Gil/Airto Moreira

I used to be sceptical about Wax Poetics but if your a real life documetarian, AS MOS DEF USED TO SAY, its worth buying and collecting every issue. I know my brother, DAMU, cherishes his collection. Remember when we used to collect The Source Magazines back in the day. Black when they put pics of graffiti in the mag. Or all those South Pole and Lugz adds? When we didn't care about the foods we ate?

For Waxpoetics 36th issue, there first Brazil Issue, writer David Katz sat down with tropicalia founder Gilberto Gil at his Bahia residence and spoke about the past and present. They talk with the great percussionist Airto Moreira and the brilliant Arthur Verocai, and take a look at soul man Tim Maia. Also: Jards Macale, Ceu, Joyce, Ze Bertrami.

Speaking of Tropicalia....Tropicalia In Furs is a store near lower east side of Manhattan. I went there not to long ago and DROPPPPPED!!!. Nothing like NYC. Records and good vegan food. What more is there to life? Comments accepted.....
