Released: Mar 1998
Label: Luaka Bop
Originally released on Luaka Bop, this album introduced the world to the delicate power of Waldemar Bastos' voice and his hushed, enraptured songwriting. Few singers can make sadness taste so sweet, but Bastos does -- "Sofrimento," "Menina" or "Rainha Ginga" fall into you like a gentle rain. An essential release from a giant of world music.
