    Light a Candle is a rhythmic and refreshing soundtrack to adventures through tropical and summery locales.
  2. Played loud, this is wonderful party music, but the band use old-style forro simply as their starting point.
  3. Some tunes, like the swaying, gentle "Silence Is Golden," are merely pleasant. But "Caipirinha," a spare cut built primarily on booming percussion, is just fierce.
  4. With a somewhat re-jiggered lineup, they pick up the thread of that release with the follow-up, Light a Candle.
  5. It’s pleasant and unessential.
