Luaka Bop, the world music record label started by David Byrne, is celebrating the 70th birthday of Brazilian musician Tim Maia, who died in 1998. Above is a stream of his upcoming album, Nobody Can Live Forever: The Existential Soul of Tim Maia.
After a decade of legal wrangling, Nobody Can Live Forever: The Existential Soul of Tim Maia, the latest installment in Luaka Bop's World Psychedelic Classics series, is out Oct 2, and the entire album is now streaming exclusively via Slate.
Had he not died of a heart attack onstage in 1998, Maia would turn 70 tomorrow, September 28. Luaka Bop is celebrating with a worldwide birthday celebration spanning four continents over 24 hours, featuring tribute shows, DJ sets and live performances, and more.
Rolling Stone recently called his music a "soul grenade." In an early review SPIN noted that Maia is sometimes called "the Brazilian Sly Stone" adding that "actually undersells his uniqueness."
