Ara Ketu - Ara Ketu (LP)

22.00

Amazing recording from 1987 of Brazilian axé-style samba, a mix of different Afro-Caribbean genres that was quite new at the time. While some axé is based around a style of guitar playing, the Ara Ketu group strips everything down to just percussion and vocals. The result is a uniquely straight-forward and crystal clear sound, still soaked but not burdened by the influence of tradition and spiritual content.
