Henrique Eisenmann: The Free Poetics of Henrique Eisenmann

Read "The Free Poetics of Henrique Eisenmann" reviewed by Maurizio Zerbo

Henrique Eisenmann è un musicista brasiliano destinato a realizzare grandi cose, se sarà sostenuto dalla volatile vena creativa messa in campo in questo magnifico disco. Il trait d'union di questo progetto è la costruzione di una musica basata su strati poliritmici grazie all'apporto di musicisti straordinari, che padroneggiano la musica di ricerca sia brasiliana che d'impronta ...
