Named after a Brazilian word for "indigenous children," hailing from Spanish and Japanese ancestry, and rhyming and scheming in Portuguese, Luciano Nakata Albuquerque has dazzled since his 2005 hybrid-funk debut "Achados e Perdidos" dropped with the help of Blackalicious' Chief Xcel. Curumin's music is a head-spinning amalgamation of "musica popular Brasileira" (MPB), Brazilian roots, samba-reggae, dub, hip hop, electronica, funk, rock, and pop along with hints of Brazilian jazz and the kind of samba-rock pioneered by Tropicalia stars like Jorge Ben and Tim Maia.
