Burnside Album Details
Moacir Santos, Ouro Negro
Only Destiny, with its various names, could transform a small black child from rural Pernambuco, born less than four decades after the abolition of slavery and orphaned at the age of 3, into one of the most well known Brazillian musicians of all time - nationally and internationally. This is the short version of the Maestro Moacir Santos’ story, who at age 14 did not even know for certain his age nor how to spell his name. Moacir Santos has been regarded as one of the most innovative talents in the history of Brazilian music. Produced by both Mario Adnet and Ze Nogueira, this 2-CD set features an all-star lineup of some of Brazil’s leading instrumentalists and singers. Featuring: Milton Mascimento, Djavan, Gilberto Gil, Ed Motta, Joyce, Ricardo Silveira, Proveta, Teco Cardoso and more!
