AllMusic Review by

This is the Cd reissue of the first solo Lp (independent, 1980) by Itamar Assumpção (a popular artist in Germany), where is obvious why he is inscribed in the "Vanguarda Paulistana" (São Paulo's vanguard) movement. Mixing contemporary grooves such as reggae and funk to Brazilian percussion with satirical lyrics in a pop setting, he covers here "Nego Dito," his opening song at São Paulo's festivals, which was re-recorded by the sambista Branca de Neve.
