Description

Däfos is a musical ethnography of an imaginary country created by Mickey Hart and Airto Moreira. The album was recorded live in San Francisco as a celebration of percussion music with the help of Jose Lorenzo and his Brazilian percussion group Batucaje. Originally released in 1983 and later reissued as part of “THE WORLD” series (now part of the Mickey Hart Collection made available by Smithsonian Folkways), the album was produced without the use of overdubs. The songs lead listeners on a journey across deserts and icecaps, through the fictional geography and mythology of Däfos, and features traditional Brazilian, Indonesian and African instruments, woodwinds and electric bass guitar.
