LP version. Quintal de Clorofila's O Mistério dos Quintais, originally released in 1983, contains a wild and captivating crossover between Celtic and South American folk from the Andes plus many elements of traditional music from Southern Europe and some more contemporary singer/songwriter aspects with a mystical atmosphere. All the participating musicians are enormously skilled, and the distinctive multi-voice vocals capture your attention in just a second when you take a closer listen to the 12 songs on this album. A few steps into pop music with a slight psychedelic edge, manifest in a saxophone here or synthesizer there, make for vivid, mind-blowing music. From harmonium to pan flutes, you will find all kinds of instruments backing the beautiful acoustic guitars and haunting voices. Almost a South American version of The Incredible String Band, reminiscent of several gypsy and folk acts from southern and southeastern Europe. The whole album has a rather epic feel and drags you deeply into a colorful world of sound. Truly majestic, unearthly, and enchanting.
