5.0 out of 5 stars Brazilian Genius, 28 Feb 2001
Mr. T. Walker - See all my reviews
This review is from: ACOUSTIC (Audio CD)
If you've never heard Gilberto Gil or Brazilian Music before this is CD is a must. Gil is a master. He's been around since the sixties and is a real folk hero in Brazil in the same way that John Lennon is over here. Indeed, some of his early music was partly inspired by The Beatles. - Listen out for the guitar hook from 'Day Tripper' played on the accoustic bass!
This album was inspired by the various 'Unplugged' titles that were released in the early to mid 1990's. The songs have been stripped down but come alive through evocative arrangements and with the help of several ethnic, folk instruments from both the South American Continent and Africa.
You don't need to understand Portuguese to appreciate the seductive beauty of this heady mixture of Samba, Pop, Folk and Fado. If you need to hear some English listen to a great rendition of Stevie Wonder's 'The Secret Life of Plants'.
