"this is a cd that i bought some time ago and listened to only sparingly. the music within this cd might not hit your ear at first listen but, then again, if one is familiar with much of brasil's music or, just digs good music, this cd will be a delight! it contains the music of the "african-brasilian sound" (rooted strongly in salvador, bahia) as one should be able to surmise from the cd's title. the root musical sounds of the salvador/bahia/pelourinho experience are represented here. it's a sound emanating from that region which is overwhelmingly striking while also overwhelmingly powerful, rhythmic and, yes, melodic. this is an excellent disc to either gain a newfound appreciation of or to continue in one's already found appreciation of some excellent music! this is a disc to own! it's an excellent work! the music is performed quite well! the singing within the cd is, oftentimes, very reminincient of clementina de jesus' sound but there are other types of singing displayed. (even in the cd's first tune for that matter...) this cd is a welcomed surprise! buy this cd and "relax and it will come to you." tchau..."
