Rightly listed by Rolling Stone Magazine as one of the best Brazilian albums in history, and possibly of all time  (forgive me if my bias is showing), África Brasil is quite possibly the definitive album of Afro-Brasilian music legend Jorge Ben’s career. 
A heavy mixture of samba and funk, Jorge Ben so perfectly captures the iconic sound and essence associated with the Música Popular Brasileira post-Bossa Nova cultural movement in Brasil, and also pays tribute to the various African cultures (e.g. Mozambican, Congolese and Angolan) that have greatly influenced the fabric of Brasilian culture to this day.
Songs such as Ponta de Lança Africano (Umbabarauma), Cavaleiro do Cavalo Imaculado, África Brasil (Zumbi) and Xica da Silva all reference and/or pay tribute to Afro-Brasilian historical icons and Afro-Brasilian history.
