(5 out of 5 stars)

"Now THIS I like--a Brazilian band that has managed to throw in everything INCLUDING the kitchen sink--the kitchen sinks of about every continent, that is! From the Russian opera intro to the poppy "Comendo Uva Na Chuva" to "Oxala Meu Pai", an ode to the African deity, this is chock-full of international intrigue. The samples and loops are used to great effect, and not depended upon too much to get the desired result. Maybe a line from one of their songs can sum up the otherworldy experience: "I'm not from this world, I come from Atlantis"!"
A New Universe
Daniel Colferai Mendes | São Paulo, Brazil | 08/08/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Born with the idea of putting together different artistic genres and human types in the same concert, KARNAK, a Brazilian contemporary pop band, has been widely acclaimed by the newspapers' and magazines' critics around Brazil. Their compacts were produced by André Abujamra who, in an unbelievable way, sat by a Macintosh to do a pataphysics of music notes and bits, giving a new dimension to the records already made by the band, which mixes Brazilian regional rithyms with international pop music. Now they are getting prepared to their third CD, which is named "Estamos adorando Tóquio" (We are loving Tokio). The trademark of the band's presentations is their sense of humor, element always present in the musicians' acting, who, in the concert, play different characters that we can find around the world..."

"This is an extraordinary blend of world's rhytms and melodies made in style and with love. For those who do not know boundaries in music it will be a pure joy!"
