This compilation features music and vocals from the jungle-dwelling Guarani culture of Brazil. Unlike the sophisticated sounds of Brazilian composer Antonio Carlos Jobim, or the tasteful explorations of such artists as Trio da Paz or bassist/composer Jorge Degas, this album is more of an ethnomusicological field recording, documenting authentic folk traditions in their purest forms. Children sing many of the songs, accompanied by sparse indigenous percussion and stringed instruments. Read more on Last.fm
This compilation features music and vocals from the jungle-dwelling Guarani culture of Brazil. Unlike the sophisticated sounds of Brazilian composer Antonio Carlos Jobim, or the tasteful explorations of such artists as Trio da Paz or bassist/composer Jorge Degas, this album is more of an ethnomusicological field recording, documenting authentic folk traditions in their purest forms. Children sing many of the songs, accompanied by sparse indigenous percussion and stringed instruments. The song forms are often simplistic, like much of the world's folk music, with unencumbered arrangements and vocals sung in unison.

But this articulate recording goes far in capturing a peoples' authentic musical tradition, and hence is important at the very least, for its anthropological and cultural contributions. If only the label had included an English version of its extensive liner notes, (along with its quaint children's drawings), listeners would be even more enriched. -Robert Kaye (From Rhythm Magazine) Read more on Last.fm.
