A rare bossa session from 60s Mexico – and like others of its nature, a bit more offbeat than the usual set from Brazil! Carmen Costa's got a dark-hued vocal approach that really works well with the album's catchy grooves – kind of an alternate take on the Elenco styles of the 60s bossa scene from Rio – still with some of the same jazzy elements, but a slightly different way of delivering the overall sound. Instrumentation includes lots of nice percussion, bits of organ, flute, and vibes – and the album benefits strongly from arrangements by Luis
Cardenas, Enrique Orozco, and Sergio Perez
. Titles include "Oh Dios", "Berimbau", "La Mentira", "Cuernavaca En Primavera", "El Dia", "Samba Preludio", "Cadencia De Samba", and "Agua De Beber".
