Brazil -- Roots -- Samba

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - John Storm Roberts
Real Rio samba sounds like this: fine small groups, seemingly a bunch of friends in a corner bar, mostly with the little cavaquinho guitar well to the fore, as well as of course the usual jubilant percussion. Some of the bands heard on Brazil -- Roots -- Samba sound professional, some semi-professional, but they're all pretty close to the street. Ten minutes of this stuff would be preferable to an hour of the trendies anytime.
