“Manual de Sobrevivência Para Dias Mortos” (in English “Survival Manual to Dead Days”) is China’s fifth solo album, a musician who marked Brazil’s Manguebeat movement in the late 1990s with a mix of hardcore and traditional Pernambuco’s rhythms like maracatu and frevo. In his new album, @chinaina replaced the drums with a strong percussion combined with heavy guitars, psychedelic sounds and a critical discourse about the current social turmoil in Brazil.

Music to cheer up on dead days!
