Product Notes

Limited vinyl LP pressing. Digitally remastered edition. Os Orixas is rich in layered percussion, horns and guitars. Singer Eloah's lead vocals are reminiscent of the likes of Ellen McIlwaine, Elza Soares and Joyce. Samba, funk, folk, jazz and MPB over ijexa and African grooves, that combine beautifully across the moods. Os Orixas refers to one of the manifestations of the 'supreme God' in the Yoruba faith. The songs were written by Luis Berimbau, assisted by Ildásio Tavares. Berimbau was a very influential multi-instrumentalist, poet, writer and composer from Bahia, Brazil. He produced the wonderful folk/psychedelic rock group Perfume Azul Do Sol's Nascimento LP amongst many others. Tavares was an author, composer and poet from Salvador, Bahia.
