Itibere Zwarg

Itiberê Zwarg (el-b,cond,tu,whistle,el-p,voc,fx): [Itiberê Orquestra Familia: Calendario do Som] [Her­me­to Pas­coal: Her­me­to Pas­coal e Grupo]

Itiberê Zwarg is a Brazilian multi-instrumentalist playing basses, keyboard instruments, whistles, other wind instruments and caring about sound design and effects. Among others he worked with Hermeto Pascoal, Marcio Bahia, and Steffen Schorn. He's leading his own quintet and a large-scale group ("Itiberê Orquestra Familia"). In the latter group he is not only working out his own harmonically rich compositions, but also keeps an eye focussed on the musical education of younger musicians in the Rio de Janeiro area.
Calendario do Som is available via Amazon, Hermeto Pascoal e Grupo seems to be out of print. Unfortunately I couldn't spot any legal download services for these albums.
