AllMusic Review by

This Folkways Records compilation from the early '60s presents songs from eight indigenous Brazilian culture groups: the Karaja, Javahe, Kraho, Tukuna, Juruna, Suy√°, Trumai, and Shukarramae peoples. Since their numbers have been dwindling rapidly, this Anthology of Brazilian Indian Music stands as an important archival document. These are the musics of peoples who have been marginalized by a dominant Brazilian society, often to the point of extinction.
