Glad you're digging Bola and yeah, definitely one of the most under recognized musicians relative to talent level I've ever encountered. Not even sure how well known he is in Brazil (unlike Elis Regina, who's an icon in Brazil but still mostly unknown here). Seems like Baden Powell is generally the most highly regarded Brazilian guitarist but IMO Bola beats him in terms of skill, creativity and originality (love the way he incorporates influences from varies types of music but maybe that's why he's not as well known as Powell?). His rhythmic sophistication constantly blows my mind.
Am still pretty obsessed with Brazilian music in general so am pretty good for additional reps if you're interested (probably just easiest to reference this list though: https://rateyourmusic.com/list/hellaguru/goin-full-brazilian/
