As already stated, Sabrina Malheiros is the daughter of Azymuth's Alex Malheiros. Knowing this you can figure that she's had a very diverse and unique musical up-bringing, from fusion to traditional. This is her debut album and it's on the Far Out Records label, where Azymuth, Joyce, Marcos Valle, Troubleman, Seu Jorge and countless others have released stunning albums. Far Out Records to me is one of the best labels out there. I've never been disappointed with the works I've picked up from them and what's better, they release loads of tremendous tunes on 12" with great remixes and takes. Kudos Far-Out!

This CD starts out well with "Terra De Ninguem", a nice little bossa nova influenced cut that dances and glides with a light flute and arrangement. "Love Sorte" kicks with a bit of bossa and percussion while giving a hint of Berimbau in it (as did a few others). "Vibrasom" is where you get a hint of the hip-hop/R&B influences that influenced her - cute song altough I'll wonder how time-less it'll be; always the risk with random added grunts, etc. "Passa" is another one that's similar but it's got a good groove to it although I prefer the remixes on the 12". Other cuts that I enjoyed were the original take to the cut given an explosive remix by Kenny Dope (available on 12" too), "Estacao Verao", and the VERY fitting remake to an old Ana Mazzotti classic, "Eu Sous Mais Eu". That one shouldn't be too surprising - Azymuth had a heavy hand in Ana Mazzotti's album back in the mid seventies and with them working with Sabrina here, they managed to capture much of that same magic that existed then. Then there are other cuts here that I enjoyed but don't want to mention them ALL.

I certainly recommend this!

Sabrina Malheiros is an awesome new star in the vast world of Brazilian Divas; she had given us sneak peeks of her beuatiful voice on Azymuth's "Brazilian Soul" CD singing along with Roberto Menescal and on Azymuth's CD "Pieces of Ipanema" singing her dad's song "Papa".
This CD is an absolute knock-out; her tone, her phrasing, her taste; she's got it all.
If you like up-tempo Brazilian tunes with hints of pop / electronica and jazz, you won't go wrong.

A very nice addition to my Brazilian collection. More Cibelle than Maria Rita. Compares with Rosalie De Souza and Bebel Gilberto but a little more club-like in the sound. A number of the songs are simply excellent. A couple are less so.

Wonderfull, rhythm and uptempo. Great work by the Maunicks (Incognito) and great bass work by Alex Malheiros. Sabrina Malheiros has got a wonderfull voice and sings on different levels very good, smooth and sometimes fragile. Very good songs which makes this record very attractive for a wider audience. As she will come over to Europe we're all very curious how the performance(s) will be.

NEO-BRAZILIAN, JAZZY, SOULFUL ETC. IT WORKS FOR ME. THIS CD GETS BONUS POINTS FOR HAVING THE ENGLISH TRANSLATIONS TO THE TRACKS IN THE LINER NOTES. HER VOICE IS FRESH AND THE LYRICS ARE INCITEFUL....HOPEFULLY, THE FUTURE OF BRAZILIAN SOUL FOR NIGHTLIFE AND SATELLITE RADIO STATIONS. DONT WORRY ABOUT THE IMPORT PRICING, YOU WILL NOT REGRET IT! SIT BACK AND LISTEN.....

This album had me completely speechless. This is like finding a rare pearl. I found this in a Ferndale record store and I knew I was buying this as soon as I heard the first song. Incredible music is all that I can say about this album. Beautiful!!!

Many elements work well to make 'Equilibria' fine listening. This is dance music with heavy emphasis on layers of percussion and electronics. Such a combination may not sound promising to those of us who listen to more 'conservative' Brazilian music, but the songs here are so catchy, so well arranged and harmonically adventurous that 'Equilibria' will rejuvenate even older listeners. The electronics are quite tasteful and this music never gets 'techno'. Many of the songs have clever, unpredictable endings, and both artists and producers seem to know exactly when and how to end selections. 'Saudade Rio' and 'Vibrasom' are two excellent examples of this.

One condition buyers will have to accept: Though Sabrina Malheiros sings quite well--right on pitch and no vocal contortions--she is, at least on my sound system, not forward in the mix. The music comes across as a joint effort by several excellent artists. Sabrina's contribution is certainly vital and present, but I wouldn't say she's in the spotlight so much as the percussion is. That said, the rhythm work is so energizing that it alone would make the album a big success.

The songs are by Marcos Valle, Ana Mazzoti, but the majority are by Sabrina and her father Alex Malheiros. Some have chord changes and rhythm reminiscent of the past forty years of Brazilian music, others have more of a contemporary edge. There is plenty of repetition, but since basic rhythms and the percussionists' synchronized work are so imaginative, the songs' somewhat minimalistic qualities are not a problem. To put it simply, you don't get tired of this music!
