One of the most important bands of the modern musical era in Brazil, Banda Black Rio's sound was an integral part of the black empowerment movement of the 1970s. Developing an outlet for musical expression to an entire strata of society previously neglected by the conservative, predominantly white middle class in control of the radio stations and record labels, minds were focussed and talents honed.

WEA Records was the first label to jump on board the new sound in the city, and invited the legendary late saxophonist Oberdan Magalhães to piece together his own band in order to capture the prevailing spirit. Their first album Maria Fumaça displayed an exciting new fusion of jazz, funk and samba back in 1977, but in 2011 new material, and the album Supernovasambafunk, emerged, proving that even with a much-changed line up, the original spirit remains largely intact.
