Image: 1591908 With a life spent record digging across the world and a near encyclopaedic knowledge of Brazilian music, its rare for David 'Mr Bongo' to come across an incredible record from that rich period that he doesn't already know, but that's what happened with this one.

This one began with a tip off from Floating Points, followed by frenzied digging and researching, and the joyful receipt of a mysterious package from Brazil!

Hareton Salvanini started the group with his brother Ayreton in the 1970s. M.E.T.A were a theatrical movement based in Campinas (in the Sao Paulo State). M.E.T.A was an acronym of Movimento Evolução De Teatro E Arte, Movement / Evolution / Theatre / Art. It wasn’t a traditional music group, with M.E.T.A performing numerous musicals primarily focussing on subjects close to their hearts - liberation, freedom and youth. Their modus operandi was to experiment with different ideas in an attempt to create a new voice that represented their ideals.

Paulo Pugoiese composed the EP with Hareton & Ayerton also composing and writing lyrics. Paulo conducted the Sinfonica Campinas Orchestra and this was the orchestra of the City Cidade Do Campina. It was that connection that enabled them to be able to afford an entire string section for the tracks. The group who played on the recording only every played in a studio. They were
never a live band.

Printed in black and three special fluorescent inks on high quality white card with a matte seal. The label is printed using two pantones. This is a vinyl only release, 1000 copies.
