cd cover The musicians:

"We are and we want to be a new group in the full sense of our name, Maio Moço ('Early May') , inhaling the important figures and richness of our tradition, a symbol par excellence of the creative and fecund force of the Spring and all new things. However, the new and clear attitude that we seek to bring to Portuguese tradition cannot let us forget the long history of the music." - Read more about the ensemble (in Portuguese) from At Tambur

Most CDs have been imported from Europe or Asia. They are not all shrink-wrapped, and I am not going to con you by wrapping them here just to make you think they have been sterilized in America. We guarantee that the CDs and the contents are all brand new and in perfect condition. Whenever I can, I use recycled shipping materials. They may not look as pretty on the outside, but they save money and keep the trash dumps a little bit emptier.
