AllMusic Review by

Chico César is a highly successful pop artist discovered in the late '90s. This album is his third, recorded in 1997 after his tour through Europe and Japan. Always reserving the fact that the best manifestations of popular culture are found outside mainstream releases, Chico César is one of the best artists in his sector, due to his respect for the true tradition of Bahia and the northeast in general, such as carimbó, folia, baião, and forró. Pop music, reggae, salsa, and juju music also are part of his fully danceable mix. The album brings his hit the pop ballad "Onde Estará O Meu Amor." Among the large array of guest musicians can be mentioned Arrigo Barnabé, Lokua Kanza, and Mestre Ambrósio.
