Recorded on analog tape with an ear to the production techniques of Brazilian records from the ’60s and ’70s… Rastilho explores folk music textures with a chunky, percussive playing style and a taut energy that recalls Kiko’s experience in the city’s punk scene… vivid playing, with rhythmic, resonant thrums”.

On Rastilho Kiko Dinucci absorbs the lineage of Brazilian guitarists such as Dorival Caymmi, João Gilberto, Baden Powell, Jorge Ben and Gilberto Gil - yet filtered through his uniquely ‘punk’ musical vision.

His style is raw - technically, he seems to attack the guitar strings, lyrically he explores Afro-Brazilian culture, slavery, Brazilian revolutionaries, candomblé and evangelical Christianity.
