3 stars "Cobra Verde" (Green Cobra) - soundtrack by Popol Vuh for great film by Werner Herzog about adventures of charysmatic Brazilian criminal and slavetrader in Africa. The album starts from catchy theme "Der Tod des Cobra Verde" - acoustic guitar, choral mantric singing - one of the best tracks by Popol Vuh. After that we are having short ambiental electronic music tracks from film. After many years Florian Fricke returned to electronic music and played synklavier. Track "Die singeden Madchen" is authentic singing by African girls without any additions to it (later the samples were used on the album by Popol Vuh "Shepherd's Symphony"). One long (9:32) and pleasant track recorded in 1991 - "Hab Mut..." - piano and choral singing. Verdict - not the best and most impressive, but quite interesting album by Popol Vuh.
