Format: Audio CD
The CD is a live performance from the show "O Grande Encontro", an out-standing success all over Brazil. Initially they hadn't planned to make the CD, but the show became such a big hit that the public didn't give them options! More than partners, Alceu Valença, Elba Ramalho, Ze Ramalho and Ze Geraldo are friends and their voices match perfectly in every song! It's pure tropical delight, with music based on famous Brazilian rhythms such as "forro", "xaxado", ballads and folkloric songs. The CD is so good that wouldn't be fair to point out the best songs. Is a "must listen" even if you don't understand portuguese. I highly recommend!

A great cd that shows the power, beauty and depth of Música Nordestinha. A great recording by several legends of the Northeast of Brazil.

Want to learn about the other side of Brasilian music?
Find out what make Brasil such an amazing and mysterious place with just a sampling of musica that has come out of the Northeast.

Forget carnival Samba music.......Musica Nordestinho é melhor!

This is not your blan samba collection, or some lacking compilation of Brazilian artist you have never heard of. Four power houses of music. Their influence has been felt for years and will be felt for years to come.

Come take a look at the otherside of Brazil.

Format: MP3 Music Verified Purchase
This is a terrific collection of live recordings of Música Popular Brasileira inspired by musical styles from north-eastern Brazil (frevo, forró, xote, etc.), by four of the major musicians who popularized the genre, going back to the 1970s. Alceu, Elba, Geraldinho, and Zé play some of their greatest individual hits, often teaming up with the others, thereby giving their classic renditions new twists and depth. The greatest track of them all, however, is a song by Luis Gonzaga, the granddaddy of música nordestina. All four MPB stars join in for a haunting rendition of "Sabiá". I heard it first on Pandora, and had to get the album for this track alone.

A warning: the metadata that comes with the MP3 downloads is a complete mess. First, Alceu Valença is omitted entirely on the list of album artists. The Zé Ramalho anthem "Dia Branco" is listed with Zé as the interpreter, whereas in actuality it is sung by Elba Ramalho here. Some, but not all, song titles have English translations, and only some are listed as "live" (ao vivo) when, in fact, all tracks are live recordings. Anyway, these are small quibbles in relation to the quality of the music, so don't let them dissuade you from getting this recording!
