Lourival Silvestre, France

Lourival Silvestre - Fiction Musicale. 1976 Disjuncta.

A really nice hidden gem on Pinhas' Disjuncta label. And quite a bit different from anything on that label - or any label in fact. Silvestre plays guitar (primarily acoustic but some electric) and, on rare occasion, synthesizer. He also sings using a wordless method. Additional members provide flute and hand percussion. The overall result is haunting yet peaceful. A real underground vibe permeates. It fits the electronic genre, even though it's primarily all acoustic - in that way resembling Popol Vuh (though the music is quite different). A very fine album, that hopefully has more studio quality tracks sitting in the vault, as it's pretty short in length.

Priority: 2
