WONDERFUL!!!
15 July 1999 | by daumasSee all my reviews

One of the best brazilian TV series ever made. Tells the story of the one of the first composer women in Brazil. Maybe the most important. Chiquinha Gonzaga was born in the end of the 19th century, in Rio de Janeiro, Brasil. Composer of several of the most known carnival songs of Brazil. You can't miss it.
