AllMusic Review by

The current wave of "new forró" (northeastern music mixed with pop rhythms) has brought lots of disposable marketing tricks, but also some good things, one of which is this compilation. The excellent choice of repertoire comprises performances by the fundamental Jackson do Pandeiro and by Nara Leão and Gilberto Gil. "Festa Do Interior," with Gal Costa, is one of the biggest hits of her career, representing the commercial balance of the project. Alceu Valença, Caetano Veloso, Elba Ramalho, and Alcione also appear, with the modern classics of their repertoire .
