Captain Planet Teams Up With Zuzuka Poderosa & Raphael Futura for New Song “Moqueca”
- Los Angeles-based DJ Charlie B. Wilder, aka Captain Planet teamed up with Brooklyn-based singer Zuzuka Poderosa and Paris-born producer Raphael Futura to release a new song “Moqueca”.
The song is the first single off of Captain Planet's upcoming EP "Sounds Like Home”, which is expected to be released in 2022.
The track harkens back to Brazil's legendary funk parties in the '70s and early '80s.
It was written by Charles G. Bethel, Zuzuka Poderosa and Raphael Michel Fiorda.
“Moqueca” takes inspiration from the Brazilian dish of the same name, a nationally famous fish stew that varies across the regions of Brazil. In her lyrics, Zuzuka talks about the origins and variations of Moqueca, starting with the style from Espirito Santo, her home state, and continuing to Moqueca Baiana, from Bahia, which incorporates African influences and ingredients. The result is a song that is as much an homage to Brazilian music as it is its food, culture and people.
Captain Planet shared on social media, “Made with some of my favorite musical partners Zuzuka Poderosa & Raphael Futura, plus the maestro Todd M. Simon on horns, this is our ode to 70's Brazilian disco funk.”
