There is power, strength and diversity in threes.
Most colors can be mixed from just three primary colors.
Oaths are traditionally repeated three times.
The Holy Trinity is the basis for one of the world’s most popular doctrines.
Triangles are the most durable of geometric shapes and are the only perfect figure.

Luaka Bop’s Three Inches of Music Series contains a solid assortment of the most interesting music.

Handy video for your listening and viewing pleasure from The 3 Inches series here…

The 3 Inches on 5 inch discs will be sold separately, each in their own crystal clear jewel boxes showcasing equal measures of psychedelic sing-alongs (Terror Pigeon Dance Revolt), soulful samba (Marcio Local), and the sweet sad musings of a suicidal sixteen year-old (Yonlu).

The Terror Pigeon Dance Revolt is a never- ending romp of a dance party; looped pianos and saxes race on top of crappy synths and ill beats, and like twenty vocal takes (seriously, like totally rivaling Broken Social Scene status) are mixed in there somewhere.

Yonlu revealed just a fraction of his talent for experimentalism and a capacity to create delicate melancholy melodies before taking his own life at age 16, leaving behind works that are something between Badly Drawn Boy, Tortoise and Nick Drake.

Marcio Local is a sexy samba beast and he has the hairy chest to prove it. His soulful style recalls Jorge Ben and his band is fully outfitted to rock with drums, guitar, bass, sax, trombone, trumpet and loads of percussion. The album was produced by Mario Caldato of Beastie Boys fame.
