Incredibly unique concept album from the one and only Tom Zé. As featured in Rolling Stone magazine's 100 Greatest Brazilian Albums of all-time list (2007). 

One of Ze’s finest, Estudando do Samba, originally released by Continental Brazil in 1976 is a post-Tropicalia studio experimentation laden with layers of hypnotic percussion, effects & samples that deconstructs the ‘samba’ form.

David Byrne found the record in Rio in the late 90’s and included several songs on his Tom Ze collection for Luaka Bop a few years later. At that time Tom was not recording or touring much. Byrne’s project helped to reignite his career and he hasn’t looked back since.
