Following their self-titled debut in 2014, FOMDO have enlisted some of Brazil’s funkiest musicians for this second outing, featuring fusion trio Azymuth, Carioca soul originators Banda Black Rio, and full orchestral arrangement duties split between Arthur Verocai, and Azymuth’s late Jose Roberto Bertrami.

In 2016, Azymuth announced their return with the release of new album Fênix on Far Out, while both Arthur Verocai and Band Black Rio have seen their most important records reissued by Mr. Bongo in recent years.

Far Out Monster Disco Orchestra’s Black Sun will be released on 2xLP via Far Out on 20th April. Pre-order a copy here and hear the title track below.
