Entertainment Reviews:

Uncut - p.76
4 stars out of 5 -- "[T]hese 11 dark bossa novas are treated with care, with the occasionally spiky, experimental intrusions never threatening to overwhelm the proceedings."
Down Beat - p.78
4 stars out of 5 -- "Cantuaria's subtly sophisticated guitar playing is an exercise in succinct elegance. Every track finds him multitracking various guitars as well as percussion."
Global Rhythm (Publication) (p.44) - "The percussion-rich 'Batuque' is one of the disc's most poignant moments....'Ominira' blends bossa melodies with several electronic effects for a very positive mix."
Q (Magazine) - p.92
3 stars out of 5 -- "[T]here's something magnetic about his world-weary vocals and jazz-tinged melodies."

Product Description:

Personnel: Vinicius Cantu ria (vocals, acoustic guitar, electric guitar, drums, percussion); Marc Ribot (acoustic guitar); Jenny Scheinman (violin); Erik Friedlander (cello); David Binney (alto saxophone); Michael Leonhart (trumpet); Brad Mehldau (piano); Marivaldo Dos Santos (percussion).
American listeners may be most familiar with Vinicius Cantuaria thanks to his frequent collaborations with samba-obsessed New York avant-garde luminaries such as Arto Lindsay and David Byrne, but Cantuaria is also an accomplished solo artist. His 2007 release, CYMBALS, skillfully balances traditional samba and bossa nova styles against his more experimental musical inclinations.
