Published by Editions Gismonti, SUISA.
The music on this album is dedicated to Sapain and Xingu Indians, whose teachings were so important to me during the time I spent with them in the Amazon jungle, its color and mysteries; the sun, the moon, the rain and the winds, the river and the fish, the sky and the birds, but most of all the integration of musician, music and instrument into an undivided whole.

outstanding album from the quality ECM...from brazilian vibes with free improvisation and an impressive audio quality.
One of those pretty affordable release for a wide audience!
