Jose Mauro

José Mauro

Under the gloom of Brazil's military dictatorship, the mysterious Brazilian genius José Mauro combined his interest in Candomblé with MPB, psychedelic folk and orchestral music. Expressing a spiritual response to the world he found himself in, the result was a sacrosanct, post-tropical music of pure transcendence. Today, very little is known about Jose Mauro and as a result those searching for some kind of insight on the man behind the music must attempt to glean what they can from the music itself. However, despite rumours to the contrary, José Mauro is indeed alive and well and living in Brazil.
