In its sixth album, the Brazilian quartet stirs up its dark, dense metallic rock with elements of indigenous Brazilian music.

The Hollywood Bowl might as well book Daniela Mercury for next summer's world music series festival right now. There were times during the current season when World Festival 2000, which completed its season Sunday, appeared to have lost its focus, the programming choices--with the exception of a Celtic evening--having the blandness of committee decisions.
