It is really nice when an artist that I never heard about comes to my hand with the help of Loronix community. And I get really surprised when a friend out of Brazil introduces a new artist to us. Meet Dora Lopes, kindly sent by the legendary Mr. G. that highly recommends this record. Dora Lopes is not a singer that recorded only one album and disappears; she was a well-known singer at Copacabana nightclubs, being also a great composer. Thanks once again Mr. G.

This is Dora Lopes – Testamento (1974), for RGE, featuring a repertoire with compositions by her own. In spite of the very sad lyrics, this is a great album, Dora Lopes sings nicely and is backed by renowned musicians, such like Poly, Heraldo do Monte, Boneca, Bolao and a nice rhythm section in charge of the obscure Os Embaixadores do Samba. Personnel listing is very long and you will find it inside the music. Sorry, I got additional time and is now available bellow. Tracks include:


Jose Toledo
Angelo Apolonio “Poly”
Luiz de Andrade, Boneca, Heraldo do Monte, Messias Santos
