Nossa Orquestra – Saudade Amiga (N/D)

Ritmos/Codil CDL 13013

Nossa Orquestra has recorded this one album on a date unknown to me. Honestly speaking, the existence of the orchestra itself has also been unknown to me up to now and probably to most of you and has so far never ever been presented on the net. At least, not that i know of such a presentation.

In short: A rarity!
