O título foi originado da canção homônima do cantor brasileiro Djavan. Foi o primeiro disco de uma cantora brasileira a ultrapassar a marca de 1 milhão de cópias vendidas. Considerado um dos melhores discos da carreira da cantora, o disco coleciona sucessos, como "Sonho Meu", com participação da também baiana Gal Costa, "O Meu Amor", em dueto com Alcione, "Ronda", de Paulo Vanzolini, e "Explode Coração (Não Dá Mais Pra Segurar)" (autoria de Gonzaguinha), um dos maiores, ou talvez o maior sucesso da cantora.
This double album is an invitation to explore the forces of nature, so vividly depicted by the composers at the turn of the XVIIth and XVIIIth centuries. With this stunning (and first) recording of Jean-Fery Rebel’s Les Elements, Jordi Savall displays his unmatched vision of the baroque orchestral repertoire, proving that authenticity and timbral beauty aren’t mutually exclusive. New recordings of works by Locke, Vivaldi, Marais, Telemann and Rameau - a splendidly varied and expressively wide-ranging selection - is a welcome addition to the existing landmark recordings made by Savall in this repertoire.

Once more we must thank David Byrne for introducing us to great singers like Clara Nunes, reigning samba queen till her untimely death in 1983, as well as the equally celebrated Beth Carvalho and Martinho Da Vila.”

Later, I dedicated my atttention to the study of Jazz and contemporary music. I studied the viola and later I moved on to the guitar. In 2001 I started to study the soprano saxophone, influenced by the sound of Paul Winter, and with Ivan Meyer as my teacher, continuing until 2003. From here I started to teach myself how to play woodwind instruments. I released my first New Age piece of music in 1988 called 'Aura', with the participation of the harpist María Tereza Briamonte…
