AllMusic Review by

This 1967 LP was both Gal Costa's and Caetano Veloso's debut. It's a quiet, post-bossa nova effort characterized by fine singing and some very good songs, some of them penned by Veloso himself. In some ways, Domingo is more like a folk singer/songwriter album out of the '60s London scene than a Brazilian pop record. As it was, this was a deceptive calm-before-the-storm since both artists would soon play central roles in the wild, psychedelic experimental scene known as Tropicalia. It would take years of musical and political tumult before each of them regained their footing, which makes this relatively modest and innocent beginning all the more valuable.
