Baden Powell - Saravah

Founded by Pierre Barouh, immortalized in his music and appearances in Claude Lelouch's cult movie "UN HOMME ET UNE FEMME", the Saravah label has been an ambassador for Brazilian music since 1969. Known for the consistent quality of the music it endorsed, the label's stable included such artists as Brigitte Fontaine, Jacques Higelin, Fred Poulet, and Bia. Collected here are performances by many of the Brazilian musicians whose careers Barouh helped to jump start, including his "little brother" Baden Powell. Considered one of the best acoustic guitar players of his generation, Powell helped bridge the gap between classical and modern music, as well as playing a large role in popularizing the Brazilian sound internationally. Maria Bethania, who was influenced by the experimentation of the late-60s Tropicalia movement that included her brother, Caetano Veloso, who also makes an appearance. Performances by João da Baiana, who introduced the pandeiro (a small, lightweight drum) into the samba repertoire, and Pixinguinha, who revolutionized the traditional Brazilian choro, round out this exceptional selection of artists.
