Finis Africae - Amazonia

Rare and highly sought-after Balearic classic, reissued on vinyl. Finis Africae was part of the musical flourishing that emerged at the end of the Franco regime, and this album, guided by the visionary Guel, captures the mature results of that era of new-found openness and freedom. Capturing Guel’s production skills at their peak, “Amazonia” is informed by Jon Hassell and Brian Eno and their idea of a “fourth world” music. Arrangements which are spacious and fittingly aquatic feature electronic and acoustic instruments in thematic pieces which at times free-flowing and at others ripplingly percussive. Vividly imagined and beautifully recorded, this is a pleasant and memorable journey.
