AllMusic Review by

Maria Bethania's rich and long-lasting career comes to a head on Diamante Verdadeiro. Performed live, this is a collection of some of her best work, from the fast-moving "Vida" to the dynamic "Assentamento/Carcará." Although some may be turned off by her voice (which is pretty average and occasionally flat), this is a good album to hear Bethania's work for the first time. Fans will definitely want to get this, but curious buyers should start here if they want to hear more of her material.
