Philip Glass's serious work in the field of world music was recognized long before the term entered the popular vocabulary. One of his most fruitful projects was with Brazilian ensemble Uakti (pronounced wah-keh-chee). Over the last twenty years, award winning experimental group Uakti has developed a major international following. Constructing all their own instruments, Uakti takes their name from a character from Brazilian Indian legends who had holes all over his body and as he ran through the forest, the wind passed through his body making fantastic unusual sounds. After being introduced to Glass by Paul Simon, Uakti and Glass composed a work together for Grupo Corpo, a Brazilian dance company. The result was Aguas da Amazonia -- an aural journey through the waters of the Amazon.
