thanx.  i was going with something similar (bah too kwa).  i've not found any recordings of the suite.
the bernstein was the batuque i heard first (i have the old lp), and keri-lynn wilson with the simon bolivar orchestra is my cd.

BAH - TOO - KEH

Stress on the second syllable.

Batuque is part of the ballet REISADO DO PASTOREIO, composed by Brazilian composer (of Spanish descent) LORENZO FERNÁNDEZ.

I only know a Sony recording with Bernstein conducting the BATUQUE. There's a DVD here in Brazil with a local orchestra, but I didn't see it.



Kindest regards.
