5 stars "Nada de novo no front/ E na retaguarda também/ Tudo normal desde ontem/ Quando houve sol e alguém/ Cantou... yê, yêi.."

Probably the favorite among the cult following of brazilian prog-heads, psychdelic and even modern hippies. AVE SANGRIA are among the various groups of Brazil that was not able to make a carrier out of music (sadly). Their history is a very interesting one: from self-financing and almost paying to play in places since the persecution of the right-wing dictadorship (thanks, 'murica), one after the other, is a miracle that they actually managed to record an album.

Their sound is more psychdelic than folk. However, the traditional music made a obvious appearence. I have a taste for successful mix of acid guitar with folk arrangements and Ave Sangria sure can do it. From "frevo" to LSD and back, we do have to praise artists who can make such good music, invade the imaginary of the young while escape (or try to) from all adversity to find something new in the front.

4.5 stars rounded to 5.

GKR | 5/5 |
