If you can imagine an album about London whose songs included Charlie Chaplinξand No’âl Coward as well as Gerry Rafferty and Ralph McTell, you'd get the pointξof singer/guitarist Joyce's solo tribute to her home city, inspired by a concertξshe performed on Ipanema beach.
The lyrics are all in Portuguese bar the closing "See You in Rio", which for non-speakers limits understanding, but the music is sublime. Old-time sambas sit next to songs by Carlos Lyra, Tom Jobim and Caetano Veloso.
