Classic Brazilian album from master drummer, Ronald Mesquita, originally released in 1972 featuring songs by Jorge Ben, Antonio Carlos-Jobim, Gilberto Gil, Edu Lobo and others.

Mesquita is probably most well-known for playing with Luis Carlos Vinhas and his ‘Bossa Tres’ outfit, along with his own group, ‘Ronie E A Central Do Brasil’, that he formed after his return from the US in the early 1970’s. Standout tracks include the tough opener ‘Balanca Pema’ and the instrumental funky Latin number ‘Papagayo’. Bossa Nova fans will enjoy the breezy ‘Aguas De Marco’, ‘Quatro De Decembro’ and the rapid fire ‘Zanzibar’.
