Label: MR. BONGO

Release date: 19/03/2012

Barcode:

Catalog no.: MRBCD0000083

Item ID: 360044

Written, recorded and released just as Brazil's military dictatorship reached the climax of its long black arc, the one and only album by Satwa is a divinely subtle protest, often cited as Brazil's first independent record. A real lost masterpiece from any angle, and the first release of the fertile Recife psych scene of the early '70s. Mesmerizingly beautiful sitar and 12-string psych ragas beaming straight for your third eye, and lifted ever higher by occasional angelic vocals or a burst of fuzz guitar. Truly amazing stuff sure to turn the ears of any folk/psych fan, past or present. Packaged in a 6-page digipack, beautifully replicating the original vintage LP cover artwork.
