This album brings Egberto Gismonti (mainly at his custom-made violões, just a couple of tracks at the piano), Nando Carneiro (violão, a discrete keyboarding), and Zeca Assumpção (double bass). The album comprises a broad dynamic range, from the peaceful, melancholic, and meditative to the aggressive, percussive, and dissonant. It brings a major difference from albums such as Dança Das Cabeças in the sense that the musical themes are delivered in a more direct manner, while Dança was more ambiguous. From the excellent music of this album, the northeastern-inspired bass solo of "Orixás" and the beautiful theme "Forrobodó" can be mentioned. ~ Alvaro Neder, Rovi
