Here’s what we’re feeling this Friday, truly a world vibe as we get the forty-five from Carwyn Ellis & Rio 18, “Olá!” out on Légère Recordings. Hailing from Cardiff, Wales, this international feel is something that will stay in your ears all day.
Taken from the forthcoming Yn Rio record and recorded with the BBC National Orchestra of Wales, , Carwyn Ellis & Rio 18 bring a message of hope, friendship, and working together for better times to come and proceed to smash this cinematic world beat seven inch all the way through. Featuring players from Wales, Venezuela, as well as Brazil, this international banger is ripe for setting the vibe for the discerning ear wherever you are. With everything that is happening inthe world today, one can get distracted from everyday life, pleasures, and of course music. A track like this reels you right back in and makes you realize how important music really is to you (at least for us here at Flea Market Funk that is, we hope you feel the same). We dig the orchestral arrangements and can’t forget the catchy chorus and the short, but heavy flute action as well as the percussion throughout. With a sound like this, Ellis is making moves with the likes of Chrissie Hynde of The Pretenders fame and singer Edwyn Collins. Grab this 45 because it won’t be around long. Stream the song below, purchase after the stream and check out the video for the track as a bonus.
