Os Tropies Cd Release says
Os Tropies, Toronto's own response to the Brazilian phenomenon known as tropicália, are set to release their sprawling, epic full-length debut album 'The Soil' on Nov. 26th at the Garrison.

Joining them will be Toronto rockers Mad Ones, DJ Maki (Fresh Snow's vinyl selector), and special guests:
Bruno Capinan, Aline Morales + Baque De Bamba, and others.

Recorded at Toronto's Union Sound Company with engineer Ian Gomes, The Soil's 14 tracks encompass a range of vibrant and unstoppable sounds and words, with the title working as a symbol that encompasses political issues ranging from women's bodies, colonized land, the matrix of plantation labor, to an environmental issue both dire and often ignored.

At first glance, this might seem like this has nothing to do with Brazilian music, but the opposite is true. The tropicália movement embraced a metaphor known as "cultural cannibalism." Simply put, it meant devouring disparate influences from within and without Brazil in the formation of Brazilian culture. Os Tropies explore this idea on The Soil, asking what it means to eat and to be eaten, as a metaphor and a reality that springs from the soil and reverberates through our contemporary social reality.
