About the Album

The art of expressing a variety of Afro-Indian grooves with rhythmic jazz drum artforms which embodies a deep precision in rhythmical counterpoint between the cultures and merging into a modern world concept. From cool jazz to free jazz, samba to maracatu. Many Brazilian rhythms like samba drumming, baiao, frevo, maxixe, xote, carimbo, maracatu drums, afoxe & forro. ~ All compositions and arrangements by Luiz Santos
