4 stars A little but brilliant Brazilian 70's acid folk formation. Almost exclusively acoustic and dominated by bucolic guitar parts, the music is an intricate manifestation of stylistic, floating "eastern" exercises, largely structured, simplistic and efficient. All tracks develop colourful, dreamy-like raga guitar interludes. The beautiful psych-pastoral base line is comparable to musical motifs ever developed by Teutonic bands (notably Witthuser & Westrupp and Holderlin at their most evanescent moments). With a positive, gentle energy, "Satwa" & "Can I Be Satwa" definitely show the "raga" side of the band. "Alegro Piradíssimo" is a poetical, sad ballad. "Lia a Rainha da Noite " carries on a delicious, fragile pastoral composition. "Apacidonata" sounds as an other desperate ballad in a semi-classical guitar style. A beautiful, sad, grave and almost "cosmic" voyage. "Amigo" is a sunny, luminous pastoral guitar composition. "Blue do Cachorro Muito Louco" contains some nice technical & melodic guitar lines punctuated by discreet linear voices, with its always recognizable folk accompaniment. An impressive, meditative folk base "work" made of short instrumental songs. From Latin prog folk, (in some points) it tends to be better than the classic Arco Iris first essays.

3 stars I listened to this the other day. It is definitely pleasant background music. The first song is a very nice acoustic number, with acoustic guitars in the back ground and some nice work on the Sitar, though they play the Sitar in a Western Style, with less emphasis on the spiritual sound on I ...

4 stars This album, even with the fact that is not well recorded, is an interessant piece of progressive rock. With a tendence to the indo - prog, satwa can make a sound full of elements such as in progressive rock, as a folk sound from Brazil. Lula Cortez, the lead member, is famous in Brazil for do ...
