Brazilian samba singer Teresa Cristina's album and DVD Canta Cartola was recorded live in concert at Theatro Net in Rio de Janeiro with guitarist Carlinhos Sete Cordas. It captures their acoustic performance of songs by Brazil's beloved samba-ist Angenor de Oliveira ("Cartola"). "Canta Cartola feels fully embodied," says the New York Times, "as if Ms. Cristina had written the songs herself." Caetano Veloso exclaims: "Teresa develops every melody, every word, every second. It's magical."
