Itibere Orquestra Familia - Pedra do Espia (2001, Brazil)

Violins, viola, cello, piano, melodica, flutes, sax, trombone, cavaquinho, mandolin, electric bass, drums, percussion, and voice all blend together in this non-conventional orchestra. The group doesn't use scores nor Itiberê the traditional baton - music parts are written after they are learned, and serve only as a record - the musicians play by heart. Breaking through the boundaries that separate popular and classical music, Itiberê Orquestra Família's music features universality, the greatest asset of "Escola Jabour", by Hermeto Pascoal.
