Marta Ren and The Groovelvets



I think that a little bit of Portuguese funk by way of Italy is the order of the day.

Marta Ren apparently is the number 1 soul diva in Portugal a former member of the band Sloppy Joe and vocalist with The Bombazines. Here she is more than ably backed by the 8 piece band The Groovelvets.

2 Kinds of Men was released last year on the excellent Record Kicks label based in Milan whose back catalogue is worth digging deeper into.

I have asked Jo if her glamorous friend Carmen could verify your audacious statement but have been told she doesn't like modern music.

It's hardly modern George.

You're right there, but we think too modern for Carmen

Guaranteed to get you a beer or a slap if you ask in your best Portuguese in your local George

I'm still learning my vegetables, CC. Today it is "ervilha" which is "pea".
