From Wax Poetics:

Follow a group of North American percussionists (Paul Humphrey, Derf Reklaw, and James Gadson) and DJs (Cut Chemist, Babu, J.Rocc, Madlib, DJ Nuts) as they scan the sebos in Sao Paulo, in search of golden nuggets of Brazilian music. Sebos is Brazilian for "used record stores," and the protagonists in Brasilintime undergo a revealing journey through piles of aged vinyl, rediscovering classics such as Jorge Ben and Trio Mocoto, Tim Maia, Tony Tornado, and Azymuth, among others. This visually stunning documentary also features interviews with and performances by legendary percussionist Wilson das Neves, Joao Parahyba aka Comanche, and Ivan "Mamao" Conti. Directed by B+ and Eric Coleman.
