Recorded at Studio Somil, Rio De Janeiro in 1972, the album was produced,

arranged, directed by the self-taught, Arthur Verocai.

Previously he had worked on many records in various capacities, with artists

including Jorge Ben, Ivan Lins and Celia, but this album gave him the chance to

do his thing in its most pure form.

The 29 minute masterpiece, perfect in its arrangement and fusion of sonics,

epitomises the sound of Brazil at the time; strings, guitars, pianos, break beats,

bass lines, synthesizers, vocals from the wonderful Célia, Carlos Dafe and

Oberdan (Banda Black Rio), plus percussion from Pedro Santos and PauloMoura

on sax. Bossa nova, samba, jazz, MPB, psychedelics and funk sit side by side


The album transcends the genre of Brazilian music, and infact all genres.

Highlighted in part by the number of artists that have sampled from it; MF Doom,

Ludacris & Common, Little Brother, Jneiro Jarel aka Dr Who Dat?, Dibiase and

Action Bronson amongst others.

The original Continental version of the album now fetch around $2000. Our

definitive re-issue is an exact replica of the gatefold original LP and the source

master is taken from the Continental tapes, re-mastered in 2012 under Arthur's
