Pedro Santos - Krishnanda (1968)

This is such a ridiculously great album. One of the best albums I've heard come out of Brazil, and that's saying something. It seems like everything I hear out of Brazil, specifically the mid-60's to mid-70's, is brilliant. So here you have an unbelievably classic album, full of great melodies, beautiful vocals, and all sorts of wonderful sounds. This is without doubt one of my favorite albums ever, so get it and be merry! I want to listen to the song Dual as I lay on a beautiful beach, and fall blissfully into an eternal sleep.

"The album is utterly unclassifiable and when I played some tracks for fellow SS contributer Josh Nice he remarked (after picking his jaw up off the floor) something to the effect of, 'this is why I love music, because just when you thought you've heard everything worth listening to, you hear something like this and it renews your faith in music.' Maybe I overstated his sentiments a bit, but nonetheless its a great album" - SoulSpectrum

Listen to the album Paêbirú
from Lula Côrtes e Zé Ramalho,
its another brazilian psychedelic gem from that period
