AllMusic Review by

Pereira is one of the youngest players of the manodol-like Portuguese guitar, and one of the finest living exponents of its rippling, bitter-sweet music. Whether solo or in (over-dubbed?) trio, this non-vocal set is a splendid example of one of those idioms -- too many, some say -- that can be adored beyond analysis or decent objectivity. One insipid medley aside, this ranges from enchanting to irresistible.
