A breath of fresh air. Dulce Pontes has a powerful and passionate style which is complimented by her huge vocal range. Her songs are sung in her native tongue of Portugese. With a mixture in tempo throughout the album, you would fail to become bored. Each song has something different to offer due to the fact that this album is based on cultural influences from around the world. Each song was recorded in a different country using the artistic and musical guidance of professionals from each country. Her voice and style is very similar to Celine Dion but less commercial - if you look for something a bit different and can appreciate strong vocal talent - this is the buy for you!

Dulce Pontes is an absolutely amazing singer. I don't believe anyone in popular music touches her in terms of technique and just plain aesthetic finesse. Each song, apart from often being musically deeply inspired, is also a vocal lesson. One thing that can be argued against is the production, which sometimes is less than ideally organic, although this is not too apparent. The songs and the musicianship speak for themselves, and I've listened to the album dozens of time and it wears remarkably well.
Primeiro Canto is also recommended, as probably an even better album.

if this is meant to be a new european sound it seems to me to be rather dated.While the instrumentation is on the sweet but acceptable side,the material is parochial.Certainly Dulce is an excellent vocal talent,let,s hope more thought goes into the choice of material next time
