Souls of the Sound

Jovino Santos Neto Quinteto

"The sounds contained in the record outline a musial portrait of my home town, Rio de Janeiro. For me Rio is not only the postcard views of Ipanema, Corcovado and the Sugar Loaf, but also the modest neighborhoods flanking sides of the railroad tracks leading from the Central Station to the old Matadouro (slaughterhouse) in Santa Cruz, in the western confines of the city.

"Musically, I was inspired by the primeval rhythms and melodies that preceded the popular samb and choro styles. In the beginning, there were the batuques and lundus, sung by African slaves in a roda, or circle of dancers who clapped their open hands, paying a tribute to the forces of nature that protected them from a life of suffering and toil."
