Batacoto is the powerful debut recording of the group of the same name. The album draws its lyrics, rhythms and melodies from the rich, culturally diverse origins of Brazilian music. Cuts include an a cappella chorus singing the splendid African anthem "N'kosi Sikelel'l-Afrika" and Dionne Warwick adding her special touch on "Chameleon..." The Portuguese lyrics, with round, soft vowels, gentle the sound, still keeping the tone electric. Acclaimed Brazilian percussionist Teo Lima leads this group of fresh, innovative, talented musicians.
