"Black Orpheus the film by Marcel Camus, and its soundtrack, were the signposts by which the world first learned of samba and bossa nova and fell in love with it. Therefore, it is staggering to consider that it took until 2008 for a definitive edition of the soundtrack to be released, one that assembled all the songs and music heard in the film. (…) The songs may be well known now; the music of the favelas, as practiced by the escolas de samba with their agogo bells, atabaques drumming, stomping batacuda solos, and duels, folk line chants, and unusual (even now if one thinks about it) blend of African rhythms, dissonance, and extended harmonics, is still revolutionary today."

Rosalia De Souza confirms her place in a long line of Brazilian contemporary artists as she carries on a rich tradition of great songwriting. de Souza's delightful voice charms when singing alongside superstar Marcos Valle on "Que Bandeira" and persuasively interprets "Vivo Sonhando" by the Maestro Antonio Carlos Jobim. Between these two internationally known columns of Brazilian music, she moves gently along with either Bossa or Samba, thanks to Roberto Menescal's solid hand ( and composer of the album's title song) Menescal's guidance pushes De Souza to interpret a more evocative and spiritual song such as "Jogo De Roda" by 'mestre' Edu Lobo, whose tones are ancestral.
