Alfagamabetizado is the first album released by Brazilian recording artist Carlinhos Brown. The 16-track album was produced by Wally Badarou, Arto Lindsay and by Carlinhos Brown, himself.

Among the songs, "Quixabeira" was a highlight, bringing Doces Bárbaros, Caetano Veloso, Gilberto Gil, Gal Costa and Maria Bethânia together again. Marisa Monte and Nando Reis participated on the track "Seo Zé". There are guest appearances throughout the album from international artists, such as on "Angel's Robot List", for which the Greek Alexandra Teodoropoulou recites the Greek alphabet. In the background, the violin of Kouider Berkane (from Mauritania) is mixed with percussion from surdo drums, and recorded in the Concha Acústica de Salvador theater.

For the album's release, Carlinhos Brown performed more than 150 shows throughout Brazil, The United Status, Japan and Europe. The track "A Namorada" was the biggest success, even being included on the soundtrack of the film Speed 2.
