Hello, good evening! Maybe I am wrong as usual, but I think this record will surprise many friends. I never heard about the existence of a second volume of the anthological Som Ambiente, recorded by Marcos Valle and Azymuth in 1972. And this is what both volumes have in common since the concept is totally different. Instead of not credited artists, this surprising duo has loud and clear credits, including lots of information available at the back cover (some of them very hard to believe) and the participation of Durval Ferreira on two tracks, which is also the producer director. Let’s see.

This is Avena de Castro & Joao Peixoto Primo – Avena e Primo | Som Ambiente Vol 2 (1975), featuring for the first time at Loronix the sitar player Avena de Castro and the well-known pianist and organist Primo. Avena’s sitar sounds like an electric guitar, different from the sound of sitar made popular by George Harrison and Ravi Shankar in the 1960’s, which was my expectation before taking Som Ambiente Vol 2 for a first spin. A few Google searches were enough to tell me that Avena de Castro started as a classical musician and later embraced popular music. He is also considered the first and only sitar player in Brazilian popular music. Tracks include:



Avena de Castro
Durval Ferreira
(guitar on 01 – Coco, So Coco, 02 – Vo Bate pra Tu)

Track List

01 – Coco Só Coco (Villanova / Badi)
02 – Romance de Amor (Rafael Rovira)
03 – Tamanco Malandrinho (Tom / Dito) Dona Flôr e Seus Dois Maridos (Antônio Carlos Marques / Jocafi)
04 – Song For Anna (André Popp / Jean / C. Massoulier)
05 – Naquela Mesa (Sergio Bittencourt) De Peito Aberto (Silvio Silva / Sergio Bittencourt)
06 – Soleado (Zacar / Siae)
07 – Vô Baté Pá Tú (Arnaud Rodrigues / Orlandivo)
08 – Feelings (Morris Albert)
09 – Toró de Lágrimas (Antônio Carlos Marques / Jocafi / Zé do Maranhão)
10 – The Entertainer (Golpe de Mestre) (S. Joplin)
11 – Eu Quero Apenas (Roberto Carlos)


Não tinha esse disco. Porém, graças ao amigo Andreas ele pode ser buscado provisoriamente na forma de um magnet link. OBS : não se esqueça de deixar semeando  depois que você terminar de baixar (uma boa razão seria pelo menos 2 vezes o que você baixar!)

Nothing to do with this post… I’ve been looking many older posts, and I’ve found one in which you say thre’s no other record with Zimbo Trio and Elizeth Cardoso but the “Balançam na Sucata”. But what about the three albums recorded live in the João Caetano with Zimbo, Jacob and Época de Ouro? That’s just marvelous! I collect LPs, not as much as you do, and I have the three of them. But I don’t know how to copy them into my computer and record a CD (I use a Discman when I’m out on the streets), and I’d love to have them in MP3. If you can post them… thank you so much!

Avena de Castro’s instrument was the zither (cítara), not sitar. He is pictured with a zither on the album cover.

Yes, anonymous is right. Castro is playing the zither, like in “The Third Man”.
