Galactic’s All Night Carnivale Party, By Way of NOLA and Brazil!

“The most complete cross-section of what’s happening in contemporary New Orleans anywhere.” – Ned Sublette, author of ‘The World That Made New Orleans: From Spanish Silver to Congo Square’ and ‘The Year Before the Flood: A Story of New Orleans’

Galactic’s new studio album Carnivale Electricos is a star-studded, mashed-up, wild-eyed ride through the Carnivale cultures of New Orleans and Brazil. The guests, influences, and styles on the record span several generations – sometimes within a single song! From Samba to New Orleans Bounce, Moyseis Marques to Mannie Fresh and Mystikal (his first recording since being released from prison), Carnivale Electros is heavy on variety. This record continues Galactic’s eclectic, special guest-heavy tradition set out on with 2007’s From The Corner To The Block and 2010’s Ya-Ka-May in a whole new way.
