    The friendly animosity between Sao Paulo and Rio is well known in Brazil. In the musical expression, one of the most visible aspects of that was a declaration, several decades ago, by Vincius de Moraes, that Sao Paulo would be the "samba's grave". Therefore, this album can be understood as a bridge over the gap, along with a historic document. Beth Carvalho, one of the best Carioca sambistas, dedicated entirely a show (where this album was recorded) to the best composers of the samba paulistano tradition: Adoniran Barbosa, Eduardo Gudin, Geraldo Filme, Paulo Vanzolini, and several others. The differences between the sambas executed in both states are flagrant, and she obviously sticks to the Carioca tradition, which can be perceived soon in the opening track, "Iracema," surprisingly enough performed by her at the violao as bossa nova (bossa and samba proponents also have their own private dissonance within Rio). The rest of the album follows the morro regional style, with cavaquinho, pandeiro and seven string violao. She also is joined by special guests Eduardo Gudin, Geraldo Filme, Slvio Modesto, Waldir da Fonseca, Maurinho da Mazzei and Osvaldinho da Cuca. The album received the Sharp prize as the best samba album of 1994. ~ Alvaro Neder
