If only Brazil had the resources...

"This album is OTIMO! It's very Bahia, expressive and full of infectious Brazilian energy. In response to a previous critic's review regarding the "cheezy" sound of this recording, while the sound of this album does no justice for Daniela Mercury's voice AO VIVO (live), it is still a fine demonstration of her incredible talent and charisma. A must-have."
Powerful and yet sweet

"I agree that this album isn't Daniela's best album. All the same, it's still brilliant. Brazilians can often be heard lamenting the 'decline' of wonderful Brazilian music, but Daniela Mercury proves that this pessimism is unjustified. Brazilian football might be in decline, but Brazilian music isn't! I think that Daniela Mercury is one of the best singers Brazil has produced since Elis Regina. Yes, she really is that good! And like all Brazilian music, the combination of driving, complex rhythm and haunting, sensuous melody is remarkable and invigorating. Saying that this album isn't as good as her others is like saying that sapphires aren't as good as rubies, diamonds and emeralds -- all are very good! I don't believe that Daniela could ever produce something which isn't fantastic. She is a marvellous talent. I love her. When she breaks through into the US and British markets, she will blow everybody else off the stage."

"Mezcla muy lograda de ritmos. Un clásico: Canto D Cidade. Un temazo: Batuque. Recuerdo vivo de toda persona que alguna vez pasó por el carnaval de Bahía. Imposible no tener el la colección un CD de la diosa de Bahía."
