AllMusic Review by

This is the debut solo album by Marcos Suzano, an experienced and competent percussionist very requested as session man for great names in Brazilian popular music. He is helped here by excellent musicians like Carlos Malta, Paulo Moura, Bororó and others. The production is careful, the excellence in playing is there. But the album is not a musician's project. The concept here is to provide an "exotic" environment where Suzano's pandeiro playing is tailored to emulate hip-hop drum machine loops for contemporary grooves: world music ambiance, not wild improvisation. Indicated for background and dance music, meditation and relaxation.
