Magnum opus Levaguiã Terê

Five years ago, former child prodigy Vitor Araújo, now the permanent musical partner of associate artist Christiane Jatahy, worked diligently on his magnum opus 'Levaguiã Terê'. This second album arose from the study of polyrhythms that can be heard during religious rituals of candomblé and umbanda. These in turn had come to Brazil with numerous slave transports from Africa. But Araújo places them in a more symphonic context: the music from the album is now played live by Araújo and his band, two candomblé percussionists and string players from the Metropole Orchestra.

Sometimes melancholy swirling, other times measuredly minimal or boisterously tribal, but almost always driven by the never-ending pulse of percussion, Araújo immerses you in his rhythms that cover a wide musical spectrum, just like Araújo himself. The super talent, who was considered the revelation of Brazilian composed music, has sources of inspiration that range from Brazilian composer Heitor Villa-Lobos and jazz and samba heroes such as Chico Buarque and Tom Jobim to composer and pianist Ryuichi Sakamoto and Radiohead.
