    This is one of my favorite CD's!!

    I have enjoyed brazilian music since I was very little. Not long ago I went to my native country of Puerto Rico and was kind of hard to adjust to the culture clash, but I found this CD in my dad's collection and made me feel like I was in the paradise island. It lifted my spirits up and made me feel an undescribable emotion. I have many memories when I listen to any of these songs.
