None of those Cds are new releases. I found myself enjoying them last week and and they are great!
Ney Matogrosso Interpreta Cartola,
Ney Matogrosso has a beautiful and unique counter-tenor voice. In this CD Ney pays tribute to legendary composer, musician and poet Cartola. Cartola is one of the most important Samba artists. Here Ney sings the classics as "As Rosas Não Falam", "O Mundo É Um Moinho", "Sim" e "O Sol Nascerá", "Desfigurado" e "Senões". Highly recommended!
Universo ao Meu Redor: Marisa Monte
Marisa's productions are always immaculate. In this cd she truly marries samba and pop in an elegant and melodious way. Beautiful album!
Whaa! Zuco 103
Zuco is a band that has great dance tunes and always something to say. Mixing samba, hip hop, electronic, trance, and traditional world beats Zuco is very "cool"
