AllMusic Review by

When not mere tourist-fodder, Portugal's preservationist "Grupos Folklóricos" too often translates "well-meaning but..." The first group here is somewhat that way. But then things get dandy, with solo vocalists straight from the village, a lot of variety in the accordion work, varying percussion, the occasional cavaquinho and other traditional guitar, and the general raggedy flair of the real thing.
