Hermeto Pascoal noted Brazilian composer and multi-instrumentalist. His compositions appear on albums by Miles Davis and other jazz heavyweights.

Pascoal's sextet is an extra-sensory musical unit that has been with him for over 10 years and rehearses daily. The music runs from the lyrical and romantic to raucous, from folkloric to his futuristic angular melodies, often creating a dense barrage of sound. The band sometimes uses synthesizers and saxophones as well as a battery of invented instruments - hub caps, teapots, and bowls of rocks - guided by Hermeto's wizardry and benevolent spirit.
