This soundtrack is for the Brazilian telenovela or soap opera hit, "Terra Nostra."
The music is splendid and compels you to listen to it over and over again. Most of the soundtrack is filled with traditional Italian songs such as "Malia," "O Sole Mio," "Luna Rossa," "Funiculi Funiculá," "Non ti Scordar di Me" and much more.
Various music artists, many of them internationally known, such as Caetano Veloso, Charlotte Church, Agnaldo Rayol, Sandy and Junior, Zizi Possi, Jerry Adriani, and many others perform the songs. If you are not familiar with any of the singers, you will definitely become one of their fans by the time you finish listening to the CD soundtrack, the first time around.
The musical director of "Terra Nostra" is talented violinist, Marcus Viana. He is also responsible for other novela soundtracks, such as "Xica," another Brazilian hit. Viana's personal work on the "Terra Nostra" CD soundtrack comes in the form of instrumental music. It is beautiful, joyous, haunting and aching - all sentiments of the novela.
For those who have seen the novela, "Terra Nostra," the music brings back good memories of a wonderful story. However, you don't have to be a fan of novelas, to enjoy this music.
The "Terra Nostra" CD soundtrack is enchanting and will touch your musical ear and soul.

No puedo explicar la maravilla que es poder tener la musica de la Telenovela Terra Nostra en mi casa. Desde el primer dia que comenzamos mi familia y yo a verla hemos deseado tener este cd. Terra Nostra es la vida de los emigrantes italianos en Brazil en los anos 1800. Y no hay nada mas bello que la musica italiana y la musica brasilena. Desde mi casa en Miami me transporto a estos dos paises que nunca he conocido, pero que siempre han dado musica buena para el resto del mundo. Es por eso que la musica de este cd es incomparable. Es una historia de amor entre ricos brasilenos y pobres italianos, entre jovenes bellas como Paola y ancianos como Franchesco. Es una historia de una joven madre que pierde su hijo al nacer y lo recupera para despues compartirlo con su madre adoptiva. Es la historia de una madre que es capaz de parir despues de los cuarenta para darle un hijo varon a su marido. Y todas estas emociones las revives en la musica de esta magnifica produccion. Que sorpresa saber que la maravillosa voz del tema Tormento De Amore es nada menos que la chiquilla, Charlotte Church, que ha sorprendido al mundo entero y le ha cantado hasta al Papa con su voz angelical soprano. Y que emocion te da escuchar a Jose Augusto en O Sole Mio. Mi esposo dice que cuando era un nino en Cuba cantaba con su amigo en una guaga, a todo dar, O Sole Mio!! Mi favorita, Luna Rosa, tambien fue la favorita de mi abuela en Cuba en los anos veites. Magnifica interpretacion de Caetano Veloso, brasileno genio de nuestros tiempos. Esa es la maravilla, poder escuchar canciones antiguas italianas en voces jovenes de excelentes interpretes en el ano 2001. Ese Funiculi Funicula te da ganas de bailar donde quiera que estes, y es que Terra Nostra es musica bella alegre y triste a la vez.Read more ›

All of my friends bought this CD after hearing it in my car. This CD is a classic from start to finish! Like another reviwer commented, I too have always been wanting to get a hold of this CD since I started watching this Brazilian soap opera about a group of Italian immigrants who settle in the south of Brazil. It contains everything from Italian songs that sound from the early half of the 1900's to Caetano Veloso singing an Italian song in a bossa nova rythm to modern Italian pop. I only wish that a little more of the instrumental music were also included. Nevertheless, I truly recommend this CD.If you watch the soap opera you won't be disapointed. Almost everything you hear in the novela comes in this CD.

The songs in this CD are so touching that I feel like crying when I listen to some of them, specially the first and last ones. One of the best Brazilian singers show their wonderful voices in several popular Italian songs. This is a must-have CD.
