Some new music from Brazilian producer and multi-instrumentalist Ivan Conti was released a few days ago. Ivan, also known as ‘Mamao’, has been active in music for well over 50 years and a contributing member of the band Azymuth since 1973. Mamao now presents to us a new single – Katmandu. He also presents the single in a few different forms that have come into fruition with the help of some friendly collaborators of his.

The version of Katmandu I’ve decided to present to you all was executed by German Berlin-based DJ/producer collective, Jazzanova and on the 1:20 mark, you will find out why they call themselves that. At that point, the jazz really does ensue and when the rhythms from Mamao come into play, it makes for a nice cohesion of acid jazz and latin  syncopation.
