Item ID: 370896

Here is an obscure slice of late-'60s killer Brazilian psychedelia! Little is known about OS BRAZOES, except that they formed in Rio De Janeiro late in 1969 and that their main claim
to fame was being picked by Gal Costa as her backing band when she was making her early, and hugely, influential forays into Tropicalia - her best and most psychedelic effort being the
'Tuareg' song. It turns out her sidemen had a pretty great album in them as well; they created a synthesis of North American rock & roll and native Brazilian styles, with results
similar to those being explored by Tropicalia ringleaders Os Mutantes, Gilberto Gil, Jorge Ben, whom the band cover on this record, and Som Imaginario. With buzzing fuzz guitars, pop vocals, spaced-out effects and exotic percussions, the band blended ethnic rhythms with some jazzy, western-influenced pop-rock before launching into weird euphoric space trips!
