About the Album

Adding to her lovingly-long list of Brazilian repertoire and recordings, five-time Grammy Nominee Karrin Allyson embarks on yet another inspired Brazilian adventure, this time including a very special pairing with the legendary singer, composer and guitarist Rosa Passos. Long admiring each other’s work, this vocal match made in heaven features Ms. Passos on two songs with Karrin - her own composition “Dunas” (with new English lyrics penned by Karrin) and the classic Vinicius de Moraes song, “O Grande Amor.” Karrin and her stellar band of Brazilian instrumentalists - Rafael Barata on drums and Vitor Goncalves on piano & accordion, along with guitarist Yotam Silberstein and bassist Harvie S - unfurl gorgeous classics such as "So Many Stars," "The Island," "Manha de Carnaval," "Flor de Lis," "Wave," and "Only Trust Your Heart," in a luxuriously grooving, sonic love letter to Brazil.
