Rupestres Sonoros

Interpreter: Mawaca
Label: Ethos
Location: Brasil

A magical construction based upon the voices of the seven female voices and six musicians of Mawaca. Using the music of indigenous Amazon people as the springboard, they create a unique sounding mixture of ancient and modern, which does not fear to step into contemporary areas just as into more 'traditional' territory. Driven by the voices, and in this sense not unlike their contemporaries Värttinä, the tunes are melodic and stuffed to the brim with the unexpected.
