Kirsty Maccoll, Us Amazonians

Kirsty Maccoll's album Tropical Brainstorm was something of a departure for her. She had fallen in love with Cuban music, and started to meld aspects of it with her own pop music. This song, however, added a third element; the guitar work here in a song about Amazonians (presumably Brazilian), has guitar work straight out of Congo. Congolese music was one of the most popular genres across Africa for decades; the style is unmistakeable.
