Album Review
Don Farrell
Reviewed 2007-01-08 
NYC based Brazilian group playing Forro ( fo ho). Think Brazilian Polka, Rhythm & dance from the Northeast of Brazil. They play a lot of music of the king of forro, Luis Gonzaga. David Byrne on two tracks, Bebel Gilberto on one and Smokey & Miho from the former Cibo Matto. They play every Wednesday at Nublu in NYC starting at 11:30 PM.
1: 2:50 fast fast rhythm, fast fast flute, cool guitar, spaghetti western chase scene music, imagine dancing to this.
2: 4: 43 mid tmpo, cool rhythm, hint of spaghetti western sound, cool flute.
3: 3:29 faster percussion + triangle, vocal by David Byrne in English, male chorus in Portuguese.
4: 2:57 mid tempo flute romp, mellow instrumental
5: 4:12 fem humming intro., the lush velvet voice of Bebel Gilberto, mid tempo.
6: 4:02 fast fast strumming & flute male vocal in Portuguese, great dance number.
7: 2: 47 fem vocal in Portuguese, Miho Hatori from Cibo.
8: 2:46 mid to fast male vocal, chorus all in Portuguese, flute thing.
FCC 9: 2:42 Cool David Byrne in English " I Wish" , great guitar + nice baritone sax . FCC @ 1:57 " fucking smile"
10: 3:05 slow to mid, mellow instrumental, faint hint of Tango.
***11: 5: 44 fast forro, great sound : fast fast male vocal & chorus in Portuguese
****12: 9:22 fast flute , guitar & triangle builds to a fast and furious climax then fades to a GAP @ 4:52 until 6:02 then slow & mellow flute, percussion, then nice e- guitar. D Farrell 12/2006
