Why do we like this?

Swedish indie rock group Junip, formed by singer/songwriter Jose Gonzalez, pays tribute to the Brazilian musical legend Jorge Ben on their cover of "Oba, La Vem Ela." Influenced byJoão Gilberto, Jorge Ben is known for his fusion of samba, funk rock, and bossa. Junip's version respectively nods to the originalwhile gracefully transforming the overall essence.

This cover is part of Brazilian Beats 7 by Mr Bongo Records, which draws attention to the country's vast catalog of music, ranging from electronic hip-hop to samba rock. The album is an extensive, educational, and entertaining journey worth taking.Head to SoundCloud to check out the 20 tracks, including another personal favorite,Som Sete's "Esquindindin."
