AllMusic Review by

This isn't capoeira alone but other Afro-Brazilian percussion with berimbau and a fine lead singer. The music is classic -- no synth-hedged bets here -- the mood slightly lowkey (the session was in Paris, presumably during a tour). Senzala de Santos is a newish capoeira, but its founder has roots, and so does his group. The extensive notes are no doubt fine but printed too small to be read.
