Album Notes

Personnel: Nana Vasconcelos (vocals, berimbau, gongs, percussion); Egberto Gismonti (guitar).

Recorded at Tonstudio Bauer, Ludwigsburg, Germany in March 1979.

This 1979 recording is probably Afro-experimentalist Vasconcelos' finest. It presents his various facets -- berimbao playing, intricate overlain vocals, fine percussion, even gorgeous guitar -- simply and almost overwhelmingly. This is one of those performances that remind one to never let natural dogmatism get too out of hand. ~ John Storm Roberts
