AllMusic Review by

Originally released on LP in 1975, this is the second duo album by Sá & Guarabyra (with Marisa Fossa as guest singer). Sá and Guarabyra each had solo careers, and the two of them (and Zé Rodrix) recorded two albums for Odeon. Exploring the acoustic folk sound that became their trademark, they were testing the formula responsible for their success in the years to come. This album, in spite of its pleasurable musicality, hasn't left any hits, but has delicious ecological lyrics and enjoyable melodies. "Xote Correntino" foretells the immortal hit "Sete Marias," and "Ondina Poconé" is a curious experience that brings together jazz fusion with Brazilian and Latin sounds. Another song with a different kind of swing is "Tarzan dos Cromados," which boasts an elaborate melody.
