MC THA - BONDE DA PANTERA
Man 104 | October 20, 2017
With an experience full of musical references, mainly, Brazilian, MC Tha embodies the fusion of Musica Popular Brasil (MPB) and Brazilian funk. Affirming her identity and expanding Funk's possibilities inside and outside the peripheries, MC Tha has created her own unique singing style.
When “Bonde Da Pantera” was originally released on the “Baile Saboroso” EP of Omulu and King Doudou in late 2016 on Man Recordings, no one expected it to grow into an underground hit. But when a music video was released fpr “Bonde Da Pantera” at the end of 2016 things changed when the song jumped into Brasil´s Spotify viral charts. The video was directed by Vitor Nunes, a close friend of MC Tha. The video represents a game of almost innocent seduction, being part of the personality of MC Tha, and three other girls participate in the scenes and relax in the same way: free to be who they are.
“Bonde Da Pantera” ft. MC Tha brings baile funk to the lounge floor, the sweet marimbas chords and vocal chops are giving the track a late summery vibe ideal to listen to while enjoying a last agua de coco on the beach.
The remixes come by Portugal´s tarraxo beat mestre Mambos Da Casa who fused the Brazilian tune into a sweet Afro house meets baile funk remix, a version perfect for getting ladies started on the dancefloor. The second rework is by Amsterdam based Fasta (of “Fulanito” fame) who added extra Dutch moombathon flavour to the original track.
