Product description

Product Description

Rogerio Duprat is to Os Mutantes what George Martin is to the Beatles; he created the sound of each of the first four classic Os Mutantes albums which are sill regarded as the best psychedelic pop South America has ever produced. He also arranged Os Mutantes singer Rita lee's 1970 solo debut 'build up' which is being released on el in June 2005 (acmem44cd)

Rogerio Duprat is one of the original members of the Tropicalia group that sought to subvert and revolutionise Brazilian music in the 60s. The group included internationally known figures Caetano Veloso, Gal Costa, Os Mutantes and Gilberto Gil.

Rogerio Duprat's 'a band Tropicalista' is the lost masterpiece of Tropicalia. Inexplicably deleted and never released on CD. File under lounge, psychedelia and world music! The original Os Mutantes performs on four tracks featured here.

Born in Rio de Janeiro in 1932 the composer Rogerio Duprat lived in São Paulo and it was there in the early sixties that the he developed an interest in the avant-garde and that would soon lead to him studying in Europe with Karleinz Stockhausen and Pierre Boulez.

Returning to Brazil Duprat wrote scores for Walter Hugo Khouri’s films and against the background of military dictatorship Duprat met the leaders of Tropicália, Caetano Veloso and Gilberto Gil; drawn to the movement by their determination to absorb universal culture and revolutionise Brazilan music

So in 1968, he wrote several arrangements for the seminal ‘tropicália’ album which involved Caetano, Gil, Tom Zé, Gal Costa, Os Mutantes, Nara Leão and Torquato Neto and played a decisive role in liberating the sound of the groundbreaking albums of Os Mutantes.

Duprat¹s arrangements are marvellous; intelligent, imaginative, playful and distinctive. He has been called the George Martin of Tropicalia; The Brian Wilson of Brazil.

Rogerio Duprat's solo LP ‘A Banda Tropicalista¹ was released in 1968 when he was at his peak. Sao Paulo was living a modernist dream, classical music was in the air and so was psychedelia. Duprat audaciously fused these elements.
