    Marcelo WoloskiOn the contrary whip smart, unpredictable and open to crazy ideas – “Agua”, played on (among other instruments) a water jar as it is being filled and then some is an inspired example. Mr. Woloski it seems will stop at nothing to communicate with music. He plays more than twenty kinds of percussion instruments and it is not simply this battery of musical apparatuses that matters, but the texturally brilliant song that he gets out of them, especially when caresses with anything from the fingers of his hands to African brooms. Throughout Marcelo Woloski makes music that is sonically immaculate as he creates his euphonious tones artfully leavening his logical, but nonetheless oblique and unpredictable melodic thinking. To find just this in its most unfettered form, simply listen to “Maracatu” and you will be amazed at how the melody of Brasil can be inventively recreated in a frenzy of drums.
