On Delta Estácio Blues, São Paulo-based singer, composer and actress Juçara Marçal delivers an electric, unflinching take on contemporary Brazil where samba, tropicalia and maracatu are reimagined via hip-hop production techniques. Created under an oppressive political climate as Brazil suffered from the pandemic, pain, anguish, chaos and anger run through Delta Estácio Blues. Co-produced by Marçal with fellow Metá Metá founder Kiko Dinucci, the album was partly inspired by Danny Brown's 2017 leftfield rap masterwork Atrocity Exhibition. For fans of: Metá Metá, Moor Mother, Kiko Dinucci, Damon Locks, Neneh Cherry.
Melding industrial 808s with melodic softness, Marçal weaves disparate strands into a playful and powerful whole.
Delta Estácio Blues is easily the most experimental outing Marçal has yet released. The rhythmic genre fusions across rock and afoxé, glitch, samba, and pop experimentalism combine with seams and scars showing as one of the most ambitious musical projects released this year.
