The Emerald Forest is a 1985 British film set in the Brazilian Rainforest. 
It was directed by John Boorman and it is based on a true story.
Junior Homrich was born in Porto Alegre and grew up in a forest reservation.
After high school he studied music in the United States, then returned to Brazil and played with the rock group Blitz.
He was hired to play percussion for the calisthenic exercises that John Boorman 
required of the cast to get in shape for the action and dance scenes. 
Boorman liked Junior's drumming so much that hired him for the soundtrack as well.
He used a vast array of percussion instruments including various hand drums, clay pots, seed shakers, rainsticks, 
flutes, pan pipes, berimbau and even his own body parts.
Brian Gascoigne worked with a Fairlite synthesizer to simulate the sound of the samponas, or Indian bass flutes. 
He also used marimba, and Joao Bosco contributes tabla and African percussion.
Released by Varese Sarabande and nominated for Best Score in the BAFTA Film Awards.
