An emblematic figure of the Brazilian avant-garde and a key part of the cultural climate that made the rise of tropicalia possible, Walter Smetak was a Swiss musician and inventor of instruments who developed his career in Brazil. "Smetak" (1974), his debut album, was produced by Caetano Veloso and Roberto Santana, and had the support of Gilberto Gil. It sums up a personal universe that combines Afro-Brazilian ritual traditions, theosophy, microtonal studies, collective improvisation and the use of unconventional musical instruments.Liner notes by Caetano Veloso.Gatefold, incl. 8 pages booklet
