about

Ivan Lins is one of Brazil’s most beloved musical superstars, and its best known living songwriter. He has recorded 37 albums and won multiple Grammy® and Latin Grammy Awards, and his songs have been recorded by many renowned artists. Paul Winter first became aware of his music in1977, when he was gathering a “village” of diverse musicians at his farm, to explore ways they could collaborate in creating an album. Paul wanted the album to have the dynamic energy of Brazilian and African music, and also incorporate the voices from the greater family of life, such as the whale, wolf, and eagle.

Oscar Castro-Neves was co-producing the album with Paul, and he played Paul a recording that ignited his soul. It was Ivan, singing his song “Velho Sermão” (Old Sermon), based on a rhythm from the Northeast of Brazil, where the African tradition is strongest. This song had the bright spirit Paul wanted for this album. Over the summer they worked collectively on English lyrics, and it became the title song for their album Common Ground. “Common Ground” has now been part of the Consort’s repertoire all these years, but Ivan and Paul never met until the afternoon he walked into the Cathedral for the first rehearsal of their 2013 Winter Solstice Celebration
