The England football team fly to Miami en route to Brazil – cause for much Brazilian music, I hope. Singer, songwriter and percussionist, Otto Maximiliano Pereira de Cordeiro Ferreira is Otto to his friends and fans. Born on the arid plateau west of Recife, he is an archetypal Brazilian – a Dutch and indian one in his case. After a stint in Paris, an interest in electronic music was fused with Brazilian rhythms on his breakthrough 1998 long player Samba Pra Burro. The opening and closing composition ‘Bob’ was an avant-garde affair; the 2000 remix by Edu K gave it dance floor accessibility and featured the vocals of Bebel Gilberto.
