Gal Costa - Índia


Year : 1973
Label : Philips
Genre : Latin Jazz
Style : Jazz Funk, MPB, Tango

The post-Tropicalia album by one of the female figure from Brazilian music, Gal Costa, including the tango-dance-groove "Relance", selected by Gilles Peterson for the famous Brazilica compilation series (1994 - Talkin' Loud), featuring the outstanding musicians and arrangers, Gilberto Gil, Arthur Verocai, Wagner Tiso, Rogério Duprat and Tenorio Jr.. With "Índia", Gal Costa left the psychedelic rock to embrace the Jazz & the World Music. Backing to her roots from the Bossa Nova, she replaces accoustic guitar at the forefront of her artwork, supported by the accordion play of Dominguinhos and a musical direction by his soul brother, Gilberto Gil. The songs benefited of the sophisticated arrangements, the result of genious work from Arthur VerocaiRogério Duprat, including a great variety of styles : tango for the title-track, afrobrasileiro music for the portuguese protest song  "Milho Verde", Bossa Nova with the Jobim's cover "Desafinado" or the Jazz Funk "Pontos De Luz".
