It's not just the title of this post, but also the name of a new forthcoming compilation by one of the dopest labels exporting exporting Brazilian music: Mais Um Discos.

Daora is a double-disc collection of the freshest hip-hop, leftfield beats, afrobeat and dub-influenced sounds from Brasil. The album comes out on the 22nd July through Mais Um Discos, a UK based label that has become renowned for cherry picking the most exciting and original new sounds from 21st century Brasil.
