Lindsay's 'Salt' Blends Sounds of Brazil, New York

Arto Lindsay has been making music since the late 1970s. The music he made back then in New York City with the band DNA was shrill and aggressive. These days, Lindsay makes Brazilian music with subtlety and grace. There is still a bit of his off-kilter guitar sound, but music reviewer Will Hermes says the music on the CD Salt is an unusual blend of North and South America, fitting for a man who grew up in Brazil but made a name for himself in New York.
