Brazil - The Women's Voice

[Manteca MantDbl506]

A title like that means there is an obvious wealth of talent to choose from and this double CD reflects the possibilities well. CD one includes tracks from Astrud Gilberto, Joyce, Flora Purim, Elis Regina and Bebel Gilberto while CD two ups the dance moves and includes Gal Costa, Fernanda Porto, Sandra De Sa and Elba Ramalho. A good mixture of Brazilian names from the global stage and others who are better known at home in Brazil , the quality is superb wherever you look. Graham Radley
