From the back cover: Carolina Cardoso de Meneses actually picked out melodies on the family piano at 2. As a teenager she became a favorite throughout Brazil broadcasting over Radio Sociedade. Pretty and petite, Carolina later toured Portugal, and today her brilliant piano technique keeps her records constantly among Brazil's best-sellers. She is featured on the sambas in this album.

Accordion virtuoso Orlando Silveria got his start in 1944 playing in Sao Paulo over Radio Difusera at a salary of $40 a month. Now, he is a great Brazilian favorite with his baion orchestra on the "Odeon" record label and via broadcasts over Radio Marink Veiga. He and Carolina were chosen to record for Capitol over scores of other well-regarded Rio artists.
