This record offers a fascinating ecological immersion into (now mostly disappeared) virgin nature, with Side A presenting only the lush sounds of the fauna in the Amazon forest, the Pantanal, and the Chaco desert, and Side B showcasing the music of the indigenous tribes living in these remote natural environments.

Ce disque nous propose une immersion écologique fascinante dans la nature vierge (aujourd'hui quasiment disparue), avec la face A présentant les sons étonnants de la faune de l'Amazonie, du Pantanal et du désert du Chaco, et la face B proposant un panorama de la musique des tribus indiennes vivant dans ces environnements naturels.
