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 is one of the most puzzling and beautiful records of the brazilian popular music (MPB). The show as a whole if a great manifest and a huge resistence act in the most dark period of the brazilian military dictatorship of that time… this record will surely fascinate you. Not to be missed."
Released two years after her romantic and a little bit cheesy album "As canções que você fez pra mim", which covered Roberto Carlos' repertoire, "Ao vivo" sounds so much greater! Here she is much more passionate, powerful and compelling! As I always say, to know deeply Bethânia, it is just essential to listen her live. In "Ao vivo" she sings, among many others, several songs from the Roberto Carlos album, and most of them, especially "Fera ferida", "Costumes" and "Você não sabe" become much more touching, just wonderful. Chico Buarque's "Mar e Lua" is also thrilling, the best cover of this song I've ever heard. Other very nice tunes include Caetano Veloso's samba "Tudo de novo" and the ballads "Lua" and "Todo o sentimento". Highly recommended.
It was Tom Jobim’s own family that suggested Carminho delve into the Jobim songbook, full of classics such as “The Girl from Ipanema”, “Wave”, “Meditation” or “Sabiá” - and underlined it by signing up the Banda Nova to back the singer during the recordings. The Banda Nova was the last of Jobim’s stage and studio backing bands, formed by his son and grandson, Paulo and Daniel Jobim, as well as celebrated cellist Jaques Morelenbaum (who had already collaborated on Carminho’s previous record) and drummer Paulo Braga.
