Desencabulada (Popular Beat Combo Remix)

from Maita Remixed (DJ Edition) by Luísa Maita



Malcolm Francis, of Popular Beat Combo, is an award-winning producer and composer who has created remixes for Etta James, Willie Nelson, Donna Summer, Jack White and many others. He writes and produces music for MTV, Discovery Channel and HBO. After being based in New York City for 20 years, Francis recently relocated to the wilds of Vermont.


A made up word, desencabulada means the opposite of shy, being bold and at ease, a woman in a sensual state. A tribute to Brazilian women, the song tells of girl from the Rio de Janeiro hills losing herself in the music at a baile funk dance. It's a traditional samba with a funk beat.

She got home late at night
Wanton, almost nude
Still whistling the refrain

Isabel, brunette,
Curly hair
A poem of waist and mouth
With a bright, seductive gaze

It happened at a Baile funk,
She danced, madly
Her sweat bathed her many partners
She sang the refrain with no shame…

*baile funk – a party featuring Rio funk music (a genre with origins in Miami Bass)


from Maita Remixed (DJ Edition), released November 9, 2010
