Pedro Lima was certainly the most iconic singer from Sao Tomé island. People named him "A voz do povo de Sao Tomé", the people's voice of the island, as he always made very clear his political views on internal affairs, and backed since day one the revolutionary party that took power after the independence
obtained from Portugal on July 12th 1975. A powerful and free soul, expressing through his beautifully soft and deep voice range, the concerns of the poor, in this often troubled country. His music is wonderfully rich and delicate, though quite minimalistic in arrangements, revealing the subtle melodies of the islands' harmonic and backing vocals traditions, laid on either incredibly energetic Puxa rhythms, or the sweetness of sensual Rumbas. On 'Maguidala' which was recorded in 1985, during his really best period, you will hear a team of killer musicians that had been playing together for already 20 years by that time. The magnificent ear of his faithful solo guitarist Leopoldino Silva provides heavenly improvisations, embellishing backing vocals and solid Soukouss inspired phrases of second guitarist Pety-Zorro, while the rest of the team delivers intricate rhythms and delightful choirs. Beautifully balanced between two crazy dancing Puxas, and two delicate Rumbas to sooth your soul, all of nearly 10 minutes each; the 'Maguidala' LP is a true masterpiece, so hard to find and reaching crazy figures nowadays for a decent copy.

L'ECLAIR - SAUROPODA

What can one expect of an album called 'Sauropoda'? Think of it as a 2am Youtube find. Or that weird looking Soviet prog funk LP reissue you never dared to buy. It actually sounds more like a L'Eclair show. Most of the album comes from deep jams the band road-tested ... read more »
