Rival jungle tribes prepare huge robots for gladiatorial combat, but when they meet, the result is unexpected.

Dir: Alistair Graham

Suba a.k.a Rex Illusivi, born Mitar Subotić, was a Serbian-born musician, composer and up-and-coming producer immersed in the world of Brazilian music when he died tragically in 1999. His work was a pleasing fusion of styles, both contemporary and traditional. On November 2, 1999, while working on the post-production for Bebel Gilberto's Tanto Tempo, his studio caught fire. Overcome by smoke, he died trying to rescue the music they had recently recorded.

The music on this video is from his excellent album São Paulo Confessions, released just a few days before he died.

I love this guy's work. I first heard about him on The World's "Global Hit" segment and immediately went and bought São Paulo Confessions and Tributo. Astoundingly beautiful stuff.

Everything that guy touched turned to gold. I still miss him.

Seems kosher, though download at your own risk.

I don't mean to cast aspersions on your offering, but we have to be careful these days, don't we?
