â€œCafundÃ³â€ means a far away and isolated place in Brazilian Portuguese. Beyond the favela/asfalto binary that exists in Brazilâ€™s urban areas, there are alternative spaces that exist both within and outside the city. These places are â€œfar awayâ€ from traditional Brazilian social politics. The most commonly recognized such place is the Afro-Brazilian â€œquilomboâ€ the Brazilian version of a maroon community. This third space within the Brazilian social geography is the source material of inspiration for many of the songs on KafundÃ³ Records, music from the neglected peripheries of the Brazilian music scene. Not only using Afro-Brazilian traditional rhythms and instruments, many of these artists on KafundÃ³ Records look beyond Brazil to the greater African diaspora. Songs using Brazilian popular rhythms such as Coco, ForrÃ³, and CarimbÃ³ are fused with digital styles formed in the ghettos of Jamaica and the United States. In this they aim to reframe the sometimes-conflict-ridden Brazilian identity politics, to represent as participants in, and in solidarity with the global African diaspora. The result is Afro-Brazilian electronic music with regional or folkloric elements.
