You Tube: Hermeto Pascoal

November 22, 2009

Am just visiting a friend in Stockholm and she showed me this. This is a Brasilian albino flautist who, according to wikipedia, was described by Miles Davis as ‘the most impressive musician in the world’ after they worked together. Apparently he is known as ‘o bruxo’ (the sorcerer) and often uses nature as a basis for his music. Anyway, this is probably super known but stick with the video as it gets better and better. If you get on You Tube you’ll see he also has a piece called ‘music from the beard’. Anyway, nature, flutes and water bottles. Balearic.
