2 stars This common album from Chilean Los Jaivas and Brazilian poet and musician Manduka is a big disappoinment. Music is different forms of South American folk, in some places with slightly modernised arrangements.Possibly lyrics have their sense, but looking from musical point, album will hardly attract listener, searching for progressive music.

After some first very simple songs, there are few more interesting ones though. Some elements of free-jazz,world fusion or even avant are added here and there. But the result doesn't look as completed work. Still folk music with some (interesting) experimentation in a few places.

Should be avoided , unless you're fan of South American folk.
