Started by the late Chico Science back in 1991, Nação Zumbi has been one of the most important modern music acts to come out of Brazil. The group fuses genres from all over the world to get their unique, but still inherently Brazilian sound. They even helped spearhead the socio-musical Manguebeat movement, which started as a reaction to the cultural and economic stagnation of their home city of Recife, Brazil. Having been a significant part of this movement, Nação Zumbi was not only able to breathe life back into the city's art scene, but to inspire others to do the same.
