HASH(0xa6ec933c) out of 5 stars Indigenous Brazilian Funeral Music Sept. 17 2011
By Dr. Debra Jan Bibel - Published on
Format: Audio CD
Very few recordings of indigenous Brazilian and Amazonian Indians are available, and this particular one, originally issued in 1989 and reissued in 2000, is again out of print. The Bororo people are from the 1,000-foot uplands of south-central Brazil near Paraguay in Mato Grosso. This ethnographic documentary recording centers on a funeral, which lasts days and includes chants, games, and a closing hunt. Rattles are the main instrument, although a dull drum and flute are also used. Bull-roarers are part of a rite. The longest track is also the most interesting, lasting almost 42 minutes, composed of excerpts of a day-long chant that includes many permutations(strophes) of syllables. Because of the variation, the track does not become tedious. These natives and those of other regions had a small but important influence in the general music of Brazil, of which European, Portuguese, and especially West African forms and instruments contributed. The notes explain the rites and offer extensive information on Bororo society, cosmology, instruments, and chants. The album may yet again be reissued, but until then, I recommend a search.

HASH(0xa76b283c) out of 5 stars A wonderful example of indigenous rhythm and texture. March 13 2007
By J. Moody - Published on
Format: Audio CD
I love this CD. Unless you are already familiar with Amazonian music this is nothing like music you've ever heard before. The chants and rhythms are haunting. The vocalists are inspiring and magical. This is REAL unadulterated indigenous music. I feel fortunate to have this CD in my collection.
