The ION studios, located in the Buenos Aires neighborhood of Balvanera, have been the usual setting for recordings by Argentine artists as popular as Les Luthiers or Charly García. In the early 1970s they also hosted Brazilian guitarist Sebastião Tapajos for several sessions accompanied by other musicians such as Arnaldo Henriques, Maria Nazareth, or Pedro "Sorongo" Dos Santos. Two albums and one single would be published in the Argentine record label Trova of the recordings along with the latter. After the great acclaim of our recent reissue of their second album from those sessions, with the killer dancefloor tune "Tornei A Caminhar", Vampisoul present this perfect follow-up that includes the exclusive "Tudo É Moda", an amazing samba funk number previously only available on a rare 7" released by Trova at the time. A great club tune for discerning DJs and a delight for the dancers! On the flip, "Sorongaio" shows the connection between the delicate guitar of Tapajos and the surprising experimental percussion of Pedro Dos Santos, with some flute touches (most likely played by Danilo Caymmi). A beautiful add-on to the much-hailed Pedro Dos Santos album Krishnanda (1968) in the collection of anyone with an interest in the most adventurous sounds of Brazil and also an essential work in the discography of Sebastião Tapajos.
