“Oba Oba Macumba” by The Vamps - Disco Video Mix by Glenn Rivera
The Vamps are a band from Brazil produced by Juan Gentilni, Paulo Rocco and Sam Malnatti. Their only album titled “Disco Blood” from 1978 is somewhat of a disco-camp classic. The theme of vampires and disco play out on the seven tracks and give a funky edge to those bloodsuckers. Influenced by early Euro-disco with the strings and Afro-Cuban percussion keeping the rhythm infectious and dangerous.
I have taken the campiest track, “Oba Oba Macumba” and created an outrageous Disco Video Mix using the 1973 Blaxploitation horror film, “Scream Blacula Scream” starring William H. Marshall and Pam Grier. As the story goes in our terrifying disco number a meet and greet becomes a night of terror on the dance floor for our beautiful victim.
The film was directed by Bob Kelljan
