It finally occurred to me that it might've been Nana all along, not Pat...

Sad to find out on the verge of 2020 the inventive percussionist Nana Vasconcelos had passed in 2016. My 1st intro to the maestro of the one string Brazilian berimbau was in 1984 on the Pat Metheny Group album Offramp. Vasconcelos added some subtle uniqueness in the percussion and voice arena to that release that even today solidifies the music of Offramp as one of PMG best 80's releases. Don't believe me? Listen to Au Lait or the Bat.
Over the last decade discovering Nana's performances with Egberto Gismonti and numerous other solo outings has enriched my musical treasure chest exponentially. His unique way of vocal chanting and use of early drum(mainly that Oberheim DMX) machines add a techno primitive edge to his artistic visions. Truly a genius in the music world that deserved much more respect than he received.
