One of the great Brazilian obscurities revived by the Mr. Bongo crew, Krishnanda by Pedro Santos is a spiritual, psychedelic percussion masterpiece featuring instruments and rhythms invented by Santos himself. The sounds of golden era MPB: angelic vocals, lush string arrangements, smooth brass, samba, and folk rhythms fill the album with Santos’ percussion shining through on each track. Very much in the same category of Brazilian masterclass how-the-hell-did-this-fall-into-obscurity type of album as Arthur Verocai’s self-titled debut.
