Sprawled across broad equatorial latitudes...

Stoked and steamed and sensual in the widest sense of the word...

Limned in cadenced song...

The Recôncavo is a smile inside an irony wrapped in a conundrum.

 

► The matrix originated as an extension of a record shop opened to divulge the little known music of the people of the Recôncavo and sertão of Bahia, Brazil (per this interview with David Dye for U.S. National Public Radio and hence a sugarcane cutter as our logo), along with other great Brazilian music.

 

► But in order to provide pathways from around the world to these largely unknown artists, the matrix has to do likewise for all artists everywhere.
