AllMusic Review by

Wonderful MPB album by the novice singer Giselle Martine. Covering a repertoire of old classics ("Linda Flor" by Luiz Peixoto, Henrique Vogeler, Cândido Costa, and Marques Porto, with special guest Chico Buarque), Cuban music ("Supõe" by Silvio Rodriguez in the Chico Buarque version), energetic sambas ("Com a Perna No Mundo" and "O Que É O Que É," both by Gonzaguinha), canções ("Diamantes," Jota Maranhão), Giselle affirms herself in the exigent pantheon of Brazilian interpreters, surrounded by excellent musicians and arrangements, revealing one of the best new talents in Brazil.
