Publicado em: Sunday, May 10, 2009 by zecalouro
Hello, good evening! I’m an avid reader of everything posted by the huge community of Brazilian music enthusiasts I know at the internet, which includes, several discussion lists, forums and many personal blogs, such like Loronix. Tropicalia is a frequent subject, especially when discussed by people outside Brazil. Tropicalia was a very important movement, but left no more than 50 albums (according with some reviewers, no more than 20).
This is the reason why I would like to say THANK YOU to AdHoc. He just sent us a Tropicalia album recorded by one of the most important artists of the movement and a very rare record, known by only a few friends. Let’s see.
This is Rogerio Duprat – The Brazilian Suite (1970), for KPM Music Library, with Maestro Rogerio Duprat delivering Tropicalia arrangements with lots of electric guitars, percussion and orchestra. KPM Music Library was a British label that went famous by its “1000 Series”. KPM was later bought by EMI and many of the LPS from the 1000 Series have been reissued on CD, which is not the case of Rogerio Duprat – The Brazilian Suite, unpublished since this first issue, kindly presented by AdHoc to Loronix community. Thanks once again, AdHoc. Tracks include Rogerio Duprat arrangements and compositions.
