Pitanga from Green Flash Music

 "Pitanga, from songwriter John Finbury and featuring vocalist Marcella Camargo. Pitanga is the king of the Brazilian fruits. The flavors of the fruit are captured in the samba-reggae Abaixo rhythms and melodies of this Carnival tune."

"This is the title song from an album of the same name with songs composed by John Finbury, Ned Claflin, and Patty Brayden. The album provides a panoramic of Brazilian music forms and traditions: samba-reggae, bossa nova, and latin jazz. Sung in Portuguese and English, the tunes convey a visceral authenticity, borne of Brazilian music traditions and inspired by great artists like Antonio Carlos Jobim."

"At the same time, the music hews to the songwriter's own voice, furnishing a fresh and intrepid expression. Not only is the song writing first class, but the band is composed of veritable all-stars in their own right: Time Ray, Oscar Stagnaro, Mark Walker, Ricardo Monzon, Eduardo Mercuri, Norman Zocher, Eugene Friesen and the late Roberto Cassan."
