Momo and Sprits animate great look at the insane life of soul singer Tim Maia

Posted by Rob Alderson,

If you’re not aware of musician Tim Maia then don’t worry, you’re not alone as he’s been dubbed “the greatest soul singer you’ve never heard of.” But stand by to be amazed by the Brazilian’s insane life story which takes in sex, drugs, a UFO cult, snarling dog attacks and of course his music, condensed down into this ace animation from the SuperHeroes Amsterdam and ShopAround. To mark the release of his new album, animators Momo and Sprits have created a superb whizz through his highs and lows and it’s narrated by musician Devendra Banhart for extra authenticity. Viva Tim indeed!
