A stunning compilation of the revered Queen of The Viola Caipira, Helena Meirelles, once included in the Top 100 Worlds guitar players by Guitar Player Magazine.On this double-LP anthology you will face some of the most expressive Helenas creations. Guaxo, for examplecontains an ultra-melodic guitar riff that will stick in your ears for ages while Mercedita has an evolving rifferama. Saudades Do Meu Velho Pai, on the other hand, is a typical baiao, a very peculiar Northeasternrhythm in Brazil, de-constructed by her very own style. Flor Da Guavira is a delicious caipira-ballad. These are only a few great ones, amongst so many other exquisite, and unusual delights.A fascinating journey into one of the lesser covered Brazilian genres, caipira, rich in folk and country music elements. Reissued on vinyl for the first time.
