Marisa Monte is one of the best figures of today's Brazilian pop a category that does not comprise pure samba, choro, canção, baião, and other Brazilian popular musics. While most new bands and interpreters center their work on futile material and focus on easy formulas and clichés, she is concerned in really adding something to the superb tradition of MPB, which is quite a challenging task. This is her third album, where, with special guests Philip Glass, Laurie Anderson, Gilberto Gil, Paulinho da Viola, Velha Guarda da Portela, Época de Ouro, Naná Vasconcelos, Carlinhos Brown, and others, she delivers some of her hits: "Maria de Verdade," "Na Estrada," "Segue o Seco," ...

One of the best pop albums from the '90s, she makes clear that she is after a new language in which the respect for the rich musical tradition of Brazil is evident.

    Beautiful Brazilian music

    I had been looking for another Brazilian singer with a terrific sound after listening to Ceu so many times. Marisa Monte fits the bill to a tee, and then some. While more traditional in her approach, which is not a bad thing, her voice is enchanting and the music is rich and full. In the case of both singers, it doesn't matter that I can't understand Portuguese, because the music just takes over and makes you feel good. Marisa is one of the best Brazilian singers, and singers in general, that I have heard, and it is a shame that this music has not caught on more here.
