'Surely the Brazilian album of the year' THE GUARDIAN 5/5 ★★★★★

Brazilian music icon Elza Soares teams up with the cream of São Paulo's avant-garde musicians for an album of
apocalyptic, experimental samba sujo ('dirty samba') that tackles the burning issues of 21st century Brazil: racism, domestic violence, sex and drug addiction.

A true legend of Brazilian music Elza has an incredible musical oeuvre that stretches back over seven decades mixing samba with jazz, soul, funk, hip hop and electronica, whilst her life-story is a rags-to-riches-to-rags rollercoaster of triumphs and tragedies that has made her a voice for Brazil's repressed female, black, gay and working class.
