Kidy – Fuzilerus (from Funana and Batuku vol 6 2010)

I don’t know a lot about Kidy aside from a few of his music videos, but there are some overwhelming sound effects here. The gun shots aren’t used as hi-hats or anything but there are helicopters, screams, and old western pistol sounds. My Portuguese tells me this is an anti-military tune, but I don’t speak Portuguese. I think I’m generally interested in these sounds used in music and this sorta works in the way Rogério Duprat used Music Concret in Tropicalia. Meaning it’s actually part of the compositional aspect of the story rather than a sound effect.
