He plays the accordion, the tuba and the saxophone. Anything which can produce a noise is good enough for Hermeto Pascoal to make music with. He has made music with salvage equipment such as old plastic tubes and all kinds of craps. He has even made a record with a flock of pigs! For Hermeto Pascoal music is part of his everyday life. He lives together with his musicians. Each new day is for them an opportunity to find new sound mixing which will be integrated to the master’s and his musicians’ completely invented style which originates in Nordeste roots.
