AllMusic Review by

Axé Bahia 2002 features some of that year's most vibrant samba and Brazilian pop hits, including Ivete Sangalo's "O Grande Chefe," Banda Cheiro de Amor's "Descontrolado Coração," Tchaka Bum's "Tesouro Do Pirata Ao Vivo," and Terra Samba's "Na Manteiga Ao Vivo." It's hard to pick highlights, as the collection is so consistently entertaining; however, Banda Eva's bouncy "Passinho Do Amor," Netinho's slinky "Dia Do Sol," and Beto's fiery, guitar-driven "Beija, Beija, Tá Calor Ao Vivo" are among some of the standout tracks. In all, Axé Bahia 2002 is a fun collection worthwhile not only for fans of samba and Brazilian music, but for anyone looking to set a summery, festive mood.
