In the early 1990s, native Brazilian Denise Zmekhol was part of a film crew working in the Amazon basin. Her photographs documented the lives of the Surui and Negarote tribes, notably the children. 15 years later, she returned to the area and found many of the now-grown subjects. Their ancient, indigenous traditions have been almost extinguished: they've gone from stone tools and self-sufficiency to mechanical appliances and standard economic poverty in a generation's span. Despite the Indians joining the protests of Chico Mendes and the rubber tappers, who mined the now-vanishing forest's resources without actually destroying them, their way of life has been destroyed by contact with the modern world. The death of Indian cultures is of a piece with the ecological destruction wrought by decades of still-ongoing deforestation, with the resulting pollution, plant/animal extinctions, and ozone depletion

Three guitars Larry Coryell, Badi Assad, John Abercrombie, New Morning - the Paris concert ( Visual )
2 editions published in 2005 in No Linguistic content and English and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Hailed as "the most inventive guitarist since Charlie Christian", Larry Coryell is not only a hero, but a living legend of the guitar. This is a fully and utterly deserved epithet for this "godfather" of fusion, a creator of subtle soundscapes and of riffs delivered at the speed of light that qualify as jewels of musical distinction! As he demonstrates once again in the framework of Three Guitars with Badi Assad and John Abercrombie, two of the sharpest guitarists on the circuit who joined him on the stage of the New Morning in 2004, Larry is one of the most engaging personalities of the jazz scene today - even if, like his late friend Frank Zappa, he is profoundly suspicious of compliments. His standard response to words of praise is: "Shut up and plally!". Soy why don't we shut up and listen to Three Guitars..."--Conteneur
