What to say about this young brazillian musician and composer who, from an early age, denotes a unique artistic concern and already domains such compositional tools comparable to that of much more experienced artists?
Gustavo Santhiago is a handful composer. At 17 he launches "Ánimam", his first independent and original work. He combines the functions of producer, arranger, composer and musician (keyboards, flute and bass) with great simplicity and mastery, as someone hardened in the metier of shaping solid but ethereal soundscapes, carving, with his notes, beautiful and timeless figures.
In this album, his style follows the legacy of the progressive rock movement of the 70's, tempered by constant hearing of ethnic music (mostly celtic and indian music) and contemporary jazz, consolidating a style that already denotes striking personality traits.

Review by italian guitarist Giuseppe Lenti, who is residing in Brazil.

For some reason Gustavo Santhiago reminds me of Marco Antônio Araújo even sounding differently. Maybe the keyboards...
From the tracks I heard "Ilusőes" caught me more the attention.
I think that Gustavo has a place here in PA but the final word will be with the Symphonic Team.

Vamos em frente! Smile

Maybe it's an influence! Ilusőes is my favourite too! I think that, being so young, we can expect a certain evolution in his next albums (if that comes to be)!!!

I have to prepare a presentation for the Supreme Court, so will be back to check the new bands next week, but I like what I heard.

Yep I too enjoyed it. Love the sounds of the keys - definitely foing for that warm and slightly rough feel of the early 70s. I just wish he would get a better drummer involved in the project.
