Album Review
Reviewed 2007-10-16
Where was Putumayo when I was a kid? This one is typically wonderful featuring kid-friendly bossas, sambas, and forros from stars including Gilberto Gil, Teresa Cristina, and Claudio Jorge. It’s completely charming and every track will make you smile. Whee!

*1. A midtempo, light, bright, happy little sway.
2. Kids choir opens a short, a relaxed bossa-infused tune w/a bit of jazz.
3. Lazy, mid/downtempo round-song w/guitar & male vocals.
*4. Sweet, wiggly fun w/a contagiously optimistic feeling.
5. Electro-bossa w/harmlessly sexy female vocals.
*6. Deliciously relaxed café jazz w/accordion, guitar, male vox.
7. Mid/up forro w/nicely rough fem vocals & sweet, swaying melody.
*8. Upbeat w/playful vocal duet, strings, perc. A happy la-la-la.
*9. Warm samba w/fem vox/chorus & bright strings. Really engaging.
*10. Bouncy forro w/good vox/chorus & nice accordion tripping along.
11. Lazy, breathy electro-samba w/a contemporary sound.
*12. Great guitar as the chugging train. Fast vocals, fun, too short.
13. Kids choir, male vox, guitar. Gentle, low-key, picks up. Bright.
