Curumin: like summer on record


Japan Pop Show (Quannum, 2008) was an album I first really heard in winter. A smart blend of samba and turntablism, with a smattering of funk and soulful hooks, I realized then that Curumin’s sound was built for summer.  According to the New York Daily News: “It’s to Curumin’s credit that he kneaded this thick sonic dough into something not just digestible but delicious.”  I think it’s more akin to a refreshing cocktail than a hunk of dough, but point taken. 

A Brazilian of Spanish and Japanese lineage, Curumin performs his signature blend of Samba Soul in Chicago this Thursday.  Check it out.  Jive on.
