A Brazilian Psychedelic Experience: Sessa and The Trip, DJ Joel Stones, and O Presidente

Andrew Zingg ’13 has that tropical zingggggg:

Take a trip back to 1960s Brazil with the psychedelic funk/soul/garage of Sessa and The Trip and the dusty vinyl of Joel Stones, the man with the deepest Tropicalia record collection in NYC.

The Bands:

SESSA AND THE TRIP
The new project of Sergio “Sessa” Sayeg, the former guitarist of São Paulo Tropicalia enthusiasts Garotas Suecas. Carry Brownstein of Sleater Kinney/Portlandia said of Sessa’s former band: “It has literally been a decade since I went up to a stage, closed my eyes, danced like a fool and never wanted the moment to end.”

Sergio Sayeg – Guitars and Vocals
Jorge Chafey – Bass
Robin Macmillan – Drums
Joel Stones – Spiritual Guidance

DJ JOEL STONES
The proprietor of the recently defunct Tropicalia in Furs, an East Village record store of entirely psychedelic Brazilian music from 1960s and 1970s. He has DJ’ed parties for the Beastie Boys and curated a compilation of Tropicalia rare cuts called Brazilian Guitar Fuzz Bananas.
