"1989 caught Maria Bethania going back to her Bahian roots.This is quite noticeable in this wonderful disc.She opens the album with a great rendition of her brother's RECONVEXO which gets personal when she talks about their mom Dona Cano and leaves you clapping along.An amazing duet with Sandra de Sa,"SALVE AS FOLHAS",and "GUERRA NO MAR" lead you along a path tinged by references to candomble and environmentalism.Then there's the ballads,Bethania's forte.Djavan's TENHA CALMA finds Bethania begging her lover to stay.Later,in Lupicinio Rodrigues'VINGANCA she is happy to see her exlover suffer.MORENA and Chico Buarque's A MAIS BONITA are my favorite ballads.The latter relates as a woman makes herself up (in the middle of crying)so she can look pretty for her man.I recommend it because it shows her voice at her best with typical Bahian orchestration in the background and gathers songs by the best Brazilian songwriters of the late 80's."
