[Listen] Beck and Seu Jorge "Tropicália (Mario C 2011 Remix)"

Just in time for summer, a celebration of the 1960's genre Tropicalia in the form of a compliation that helps battle in the fight against AIDS, courtesy of the non-profit organization Red Hot. The compliation, Red Hot + Rio 2 features tropicalia treats from the likes of Brazil's legendary musicians paired with indie artists known internationally, including: John Legend, Os Mutantes, Devendra Banhart, Caetano Veloso, Dirty Projectors, Seu Jorge, Beck, Bebel Gilberto, José Gonzalez, Beirut, Tom Zé, Of Montreal, Marisa Monte Gogol Bordello, DJ Dolores, Aloe Blacc, Angelique Kidjo, Rita Lee, Madlib, Money Mark, Céu, Apollo Nove, Mayra Andrade, Trio Mocotó, Tha Boogie, Alice Smith, Carlinhos Brown, Los Van Van, Brazilian Girls, Marcos Valle, St. Vincent, Neon Indian, Forró In The Dark, Mia Doi Todd, Javelin, and many more.

Yes, in addition to the ten thousand other things Beck is up to, the love of my musical life is also trying to help raise money for a non-profit who is dedicated to fight AIDS through pop culture. I guess all is forgiven.... this time.

Below is a rework of his 1998 classic, appropriately titled "Tropicalia" from Mutations, complete with verses sung by Brazillian songwriter/musician and actor Seu Jorge with a little added production here and there by Brazillian producer Mario C.

You can check out a full tracklisting of the two-disc compliation here.
