A beautiful debut from this up-and-coming Brazilian singer – put together with a really timeless feel that comes through in both the vocals and instrumentation! Dom's got a breathy way of singing – a style that takes us back to older French modes by artists like Jane Birkin and Brigitte Fontaine – and she also plays a fair bit of cello and acoustic piano on the record, shading in the tunes with this subtle acoustic sort of darkness that's mighty nice – picked up by co-producer Piers Faccini, and given little tweaks around the edges – in a creative pairing that's almost like some of the Benjamin Biolay projects in recent years! The set's got a surprising amount of depth – a lot more so than other Six Degrees albums – and the record's got an appeal that goes way past just contemporary Brazilian music. Titles include "Sambinha", "Conto De Fadas", "Anjo Gabriel", "No Meu Pais", "Batuque", "Ela", and "Menina Dos Olhos Azuis".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.
