In the time-honored spirit of excavating gold from the unlikeliest dark corners, we bring you
the shiniest of gems which is guaranteed to thrill lovers of classic Brazilian bossa and MPB.
This self-titled album by Rio's Grupo Ébano, an all-female gospel vocal group, was originally
released on CD only in 1997 on a small independent label and in small quantities. The songs,
all originals from the pen of group leader (and backing vocalist to the stars) Gil Miranda, are
richly melodic and sophisticated in the mode of all the 60s and 70s Brazilian classics (think
Quarteto Em Cy) while their positive spiritual message is more reminiscent of the Clark
Sisters if they sang in Portuguese.
This first-time reissue, first-time vinyl & digital edition and debut international release will
bring many new fresh ears to this lovely and very classy album which will appeal to different
generations of Brazilian music lovers, from tastemaking DJs to their parents to even their
