Album artwork for Pretaluz by Waldemar Bastos

The worldwide debut of the Angolan artist, produced by Arto Lindsay, and “one of the great, overlooked records of 1998,” as the New York Times wrote. “With his dramatic pauses and dynamic vibrato rising above subtle rhythms picked out on nylon-string guitars, everything Mr. Bastos sings emerges as a lament of enormous sadness.” Now on vinyl for the very first time, Pretaluz [Blacklight] is a contender for the best-sounding record on Luaka Bop.
