Nana Vasconcelos - Africadeus LP
Spiritual, intimate and revolutionary, yet firmly rooted in Brazil's folklore. Africadeus was the breakthrough album of the mighty Nana Vasconcelos, in which he discovered the berimbau to the world and took the instrument to a universal level, abstracting it from its original context of capoeira. Having played in the shadows for other artists such as Milton Nascimento, Gato Barbieri or Som Imaginario, Nana is here finally in the spotlight.
Recorded in 1973 in France for Pierre Barouh's Saravah label, this is the album that definitely imprinted Nana's name in the international scene, on his track to becoming one of the best percussionists of all times.
Immensely proud to offer a quality reissue of both his early 70s albums for the French label Saravah.
