CD Reviews

Brazil's music is infinite
Mauricio Vigil | Sundbyberg, Sweden | 07/12/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"How could it be possible?
Still new versions of Vinicius' famous Consolacao, or
Tristeza E Solidao, or even Canto De Ossanha?
Oh yes! These two, chemicaly pure elements, Salmaso-Bellinati
are made for each other. In my opinion, the best and most
sensitive music form that Brazil has seen during the last 10
years.
There are no words to describe their quality.
You are a privileged person, in the right place, at the
right time. Be prepared and just do not let anybody disturb you
after pressing the "PLAY"-button.

Guitar + vocal heaven
Edmund Pickett | 0 | 09/23/2007

"This is a miracle of collaboration between the composers, Baden-Powell & DeMoraes, the arranger Paulo Bellinati, and the performers, Bellinati (guitar) and Monica Salmaso (voice). The Afro-Sambas are justly famous, songs created by Baden Powell, inspired by the voodoo music of northern Brazil. Baden Powell recorded two different versions, The Tamba Four jazz group, led by the astonishing pianist Luis Eca, recorded many of them on their album "We and the Sea." And there have been other versions also.
But no one ever anticipated that Paulo Bellinati, one of Brazil's great classical guitarists, would arrange the Afro-Sambas for only guitar and voice. I have many other guitar/voice duet albums, such as Enrique Coria & Yolanda Aranda and Narciso Yepes & Teresa Berganza. These are brilliant and worth any effort to acquire, but this version of the Afro-Sambas is the best such effort I know of. Buy it. You won't regret it."

"Simple... bitter sweet... This music fills you with "saudage"...
A trully a breath taking work of art..."
