The second album from the group Pedra Branca.
Feijoada Polifonica, is the continuation of the work that conquered admirers all over Brazil and have been recognized internationally. Since the beginning, in 2001, they look for to innovate, without losing the idea of experimental, escaping from what is pre-determinate.
The title Feijoada Polifonica expresses the idea of mixing different sounds in their own way. 'We play Brazilian rhythms and melodies on instruments from the whole world', they affirm. With the sound of the didgeridoo, the sitar, the samissen, the caxixi, the tabla, the djembe, the sonorous elephant, the oriental viola (invented by the member Sallun), the pandeiro, the berimbau, the congas, the cuica, the jaw harp and of the other instruments that mark their presentations, the musicians express the Brazilian multiple identities and what is current in the national culture.
The 14 tracks explore more the use of the instruments in a digital way, with more effects, and keep the ethnical feeling, a huge characteristic from the group. The conscience of social stuff appears by political words, withdrawals from movies, interviews and declarations, showing the questions that reach Brazilian history and reality.
Some songs were showen to the public at live concerts and gave to the fans a taste of the new work, which were welcomed.
