Vinyl LP pressing. 2012 album from the New Orleans-based Funk/Jazz outfit. Galactic was formed 18 years ago; the band cut their teeth playing the biggest party in America, Mardi Gras, when the town shuts completely down to celebrate. Carnivale Electricos is the sound of that party, and much more. It's a carnival record that evokes the primal, electric atmosphere of a whole city vibrating together to one beat, in a seismic wave that runs from New Orleans down through the Caribbean to the southern hemisphere and the mighty mega carnivals of Brazil.
