Autumn 2016 marks for the fortieth anniversary of the British musical revolution that was Punk Rock, fanfared by the release of ‘Anarchy In The UK’ by the Sex Pistols and ‘New Rose’ by The Damned. Marking this monumental birthday, ACTION TIME VISION is the first-ever box set to document the independent punk scene, which was born with Punk and thrived outside of the major label framework.

Voz, O Violao, A Musica de Djavan by Djavan was released Feb 02, 2009 on the Som Livre label. Djavan's first recorded LP, released in 1976, originated one year earlier, when he was awarded second place at TV Globo's Festival Abertura for his song "Fato Consumado." The following year came this album, which contained one of his biggest hits, "Flor de Lis," along with his previous award-winning song. The highlights are the wonderful melodies, the musical sonority of his lyrics (it even doesn't matter if you understand them, as his focus is on its musicality), the smart violao of Djavan, and the rich rhythmic interplay between voice and violao. All of the compositions are great, exploring from samba to baiao, and, more importantly, it's mostly an acoustic band album, with cool touches of a Rhodes.
