Som Imaginario - Som Imaginario

Som Imaginario
Som Imaginario! In the ferment of Brasilian music, which was taking place in the post Bossa Nova period and when the most unlikely musical figures had suddenly been thrust onto a world stage, many quite amazing musical explosions came to the surface as Tropicalia took hold, and the unlikely sounds of funk, prog, psychedelic rock and lord knows what else were filtered through the unique sensibility of Brasil. Som Imaginario! Musical prodigy Wagner Tiso and the Wanderley brothers played in many combos with their neighbour Milton Nacimento, and when the latter had his major label international breakthrough he employed his old friends to back him on his debut, dubbing them SOM IMAGINARIO after a phrase in a review of a triumphant concert they did together. Luiz Alves and Robertinho Silva, Tavito, Ze Rodrix, Laudir de Oliveira and Frederico were all members of SON IMAGINARIO, along with Milton Nascimento and other star guests on uncredited vocals on one of the most amazing albums ever to come out of Brasil. Bossa, Tropicalia and Samba meet Italian prog and Brit psych; western pop meets eastern soundtracks with DJ friendly beats breaking through all over the shop. An album that was acclaimed on its release by a gobsmacked Herbie Hancock, it has to be heard to be believed!!
