 I loved "Umbabarauma" from the first Luaka Bop compilation from '89 or whenever from the moment I heard it, and really need to check out more of this guy's stuff.

 cw: i find him pretty reliable (i make that clear), but not always that interesting. definitely check out 'a tabua,' it's fantastic. this one's good, but nothing to flip over.

 mikwpowell's right, A Tabua de Esmeralda is Ben's masterpiece. I was so close to picking this one up just the other day, but I chose a Jobim instead.
