Today we’re listening to Poranguí, a Brazilian-Chicano artist and multi-instrumentalist. Born in Brazil, he attended high school in Arizona and growing up studied music across Brazilian, Mexican, and Native Southwestern cultures.1 He plays an incredible range of instruments, from pandeiro to flute to didgeridoo to charango. On Ayahuasca, an original score to the 2016 documentary of the same name, Poranguí plays a collection of native instruments against a backdrop of Amazon rainforest field recordings. “Iluminar” is the standout track in our opinion. We’re also playing Kuya Sessions: Cura from 2021, a collaboration with producer Liquid Bloom, which is a guided instrumental triptych featuring similar sounds as Ayahuasca.
We wish you a great start to your week.
