Vera Mara’s vocals grace an astounding hybrid of Brazilian and Yoruba beats.

A tribute to Orixás, the gods of the Yoruba faith originating in Nigeria and the New World, a masterful piece house magic featuring Brazilian vocalist Vera Mara. As the legend goes, Mara basically walked into the studio, had a listen to the beats, took the mic and started ad libbing to the groove in what sounded like a hybrid of Portuguese and Yoruba, delivering with such sparkling élan that even when the phone rang during recording, the producers could not bear to kill the take. Brilliantly mixed on the fly by producers Jerome Sydenham and Kerri Chandler, the record breaks down towards the end in a frenzy of rhythm served up to the gods. Mesmerizing.

Lyrics
I taste you much better
Off teeth taste
Of white skin on red leather
Check the claws we got

Night time cavity to come in
Downtown pony work your pitch

I came to in feathers
Like leaves taste
You rubbed me together
With claws like we got

Night time cavity to come in
Downtown pony work your pitch
Daytime dancer, I'll come inside
Got my teacher now carve your niche

[Incomprehensible] is yours
Night time cavity, ahh

Night time cavity to come in
Downtown pony work your pitch
Daytime dancer, I'll come inside
Got my teacher now carve your niche
