DESCRIPTION

"This is an all-time classic Brazilian album, featuring Jorge Ben on “Que Maravilha,” “Zana” and “Carolina Carol Bela” as sampled by DJ Marky on “LK.”

Brazilian guitarist and singer Toquinho (aka Antônio Pecci Filho) was born in São Paulo, Brazil, in the 1940s. His first major hit single was “Que Maravilha,” as featured here, that he wrote with Jorge Ben. This album also features the ultra-famous “Carolina Carol Bela,” also written with Ben.

Toquinho had a prolific career releasing a huge number of albums and writing on even more. He released many records with Vinicius De Moraes during the ’70s.

“Carolina Carol Bela” was sampled by DJ Marky on his drum n bass hit “LK” — the track that launched the sound of Brazilian drum ’n’ bass outside of Brazil."
