It consists of 19 songs, lasts 1h45m and has the collaboration of 16 guest artists. The weight of this great production is immediately felt. Gilberto Santa Rosa is a champion in collaborations. He is one of the most active figures in the Latin music industry. An admirable feat considering his long musical career and his 58 years. It remains fresh, dynamic and passionate.
