Nana Caymmi is especially fond of the romantic repertoire, but she is never corny. This album is a good sample of her style, although it doesn't have her classic hits. Nevertheless, she makes excellent choices on repertoire, composers, and arrangements. It was included in the soundtrack of TV Globo's soap opera Hilda Furacão, selling 100 thousand copies in Brazil and bringing her second Golden Record. In the mix, one can find boleros, mid-sambas, an instrumental baião, sambas-canção, marchas-rancho, a valse, and a doleful canção. "Pra Machucar Meu Coração" (Ary Barroso) always deserves mention, but, as always, she preferred to interpret less known songs by important composers. She is joined on this album by Erasmo Carlos, Emílio Santiago, and Chico Buarque.
