Brazilian band Mawaca is on the final steps of a new project titled Inquilinos do Mundo – Dwellers of the World. This new venue has been featuring melodies and rhythms of nomadic peoples, refugees, exiles and gypsies from all over the globe. It’s all about songs from Macedonia, Bulgaria, Romania, Greece, Spain, India, Mexico and Haiti, which were held in memories as truly sonorous reliquaries.

‘Dwellers of the World’ is been one of the most daring productions Mawaca ‘s already made . It was a live recorded piece at Studio NaCena in São Paulo, produced by Finnish musician Pekka Lehti. The piece was mixed and mastered at Finnvox in Helsinki. The DVD was shot and directed by Olindo Estevam – Paiol Movies – ,with musical direction performed by anthropologist and musicist Magda Pucci.

Mawaca’s lived along 16 y-o as an independent band. The ensemble has been working out off sponsorship, and it hasn’t had any support from record labels so far. The group performs a multicultural repertoire, and it has performed on abroad in more than 25 different languages. Mawaca shows the cultural diversity of the world, throughout songs which pays its homage to the Brazilian indigenous peoples, immigrants, Japanese, Muslims, Gypsies, Arabs, Africans and several others. The group has performed in very outstanding countries all over the world, such as Spain, Portugal, Germany, China, Greece, Bolivia, Amazon, etc.

Who knows Mawaca already knows its concerts are such a life celebration, a vibrant collective gathering, followed by a fierce and contagious audience. When Mawaca decided to record Dwellers of the World with the musicians coming all together like in a live concert, our desire was to catch this entire magical moment, fully loaded of emotion, to take you back home with us.
