Description
Contemporary Brazilian music encompasses a vast array of styles, but this "unplugged" disc focuses on the lilting melodies and enchanting grooves of the acoustic samba and bossa nova. Among the 15 tracks are numbers by Brazilian legends Maria Bethania ("Samba de Bencao"), and Chico Buarque ("Outros Sonhos"), while all of them benefit from being sung in the lovely Portuguese language.

"Marcos Sacramento sings as if he's stroking you and smiling, while the trumpets in Casuarina's 'Pot-Pourri' medley are emphatic yet genial, like the nudges of benevolent dolphins. Gabriel Moura's samba-funk ['O Perfuma da Nega'] is sexy without being pushy."—Pop Matters

"Katia B's collaboration with Vitor Ramil and Marcos Suzano, 'Que Horas Nao Sao?,' is the definitive bossa—lushly textured, delicate vocals, a primal drive initiated by the drums…. Orquestra Imperial's 'Sem Compromisso' does what Brazilian songs do best—invite joy and sunshine into the listener's life in under three minutes."—Sing Out!

"Many of the exotic and enchanting rhythms of Brazil come together in this special compilation … of after-midnight tracks."—Latin Beat
