4 stars From the very crazy mind of Lula Cortes (that would give us in a few years ahead the marvelous Paebiru and way ahead would have a strange pop-psych-folk mixture in his solo career), came a great voyage thorugh indian, northeartern brazilian folk and a lot of psychdelia.

I have mention the Psychdelic Folk scene of Brazil in other posts ad reviews (with Lula Cortes, Alceu Valença and Ave Sangria being the expoents), and maybe one of the best albums that show this is Satwa. A whole trip into every style that influences this two musicians - and others close to them as well - are merged here with the sitar. We can even hear something closely related to a acid-blues, in acoustic passages, what made me think in a crazy relationship with Sandy Bull' E Pluribus Unum (check it out!).

As the album is too steady (without any edgy parts, sadly) I cant go on to give this a full five stars. However, as a great sum up of what this whole musical scene is (or at least a representative of one of their sound possibilities), let's give'em 4 sars.

GKR | 4/5 |
