About this Album
The free album MP3 downloads, available with other discs in the Nonesuch Store, are not included with this CD.Working with the youthful trio he introduced on 2007’s brash, rock-oriented Cê, Veloso fashions a set rooted in samba but filtered through rock and funk, with songs that range from the bluntly political to the frankly sexual. The Times of London declared, “The Brazilian master remains in a league of his own.”
