"An exciting combination of salsa and soukous. 'Tata Masamba' is terrific. Lemvo is a great vocalist singing in Spanish, Lingala and Portuguese. Niño Jesus handles arrangements and keyboards. All-around percussionist Humberto 'Nengue' Hernandez is featured on percussion." (Raul Fernandez 98/99 Catalog)
Song titles include:
"Ricardo blends African and Brazilian influences with Afro-Cuban music with great finesse. This is such joyous music (even 'Minha Querida,' a song about longing and heartbreak), that the more you listen, the more hooked you'll get." (Nina Lenart 98/99 Catalog)
"Erotic salsa by an African vocalist. A must have for dancers." (Max Salazar 98/99 Catalog)
