I remember the taste of coconut bread and an island with lizards that were the size of cats, she says, referring to an island in Angra dos Reis where she went after her Free Jazz dates in 1996.

I had a Brazilian musical phase, in between 94 and 95, trying to understand how a country from the second world, besides Iceland, dealt with the tradition of German and French string orchestration. Nowadays I am listening lots of Erich Korngold (classic Czech musician, that has also written lots of soundtracks for Hollywood).
