This is the LP from the Brazilian instrumental band Sexteto do Beco, released independently in 1980 and now a very hard to find vinyl pursuit worldwide by collectors.
Three students of a University in Bahia from Brazil Northeast, Bahia State, found Sexteto do Beco. Actually, Sexteto do Beco has 18 members, but started as a sextet and kept the name until the end. They released only this self-titled LP, recorded and mixed in only eight days. Take this as one of the legendary albuns of Brazilian instrumental music.
