Rootsy singer-songwriter sound with samba, afrobeat and funk
Maria Gadú is one of the fastest-rising stars of popular Brazilian music, with four CDs and two Latin Grammy Awards to her name. At ten she was writing her own songs, and at thirteen she was singing them live in Sao Paulo cafés. One of these songs, Shimbalaiê, would go on to be a number one hit in Italy in 2011. After moving to Rio she worked on projects with Caetano Veloso, was a guest artist on the albums Rendez-Vous and Magic by Sergio Mendes, and last year was one of the singers featured on Tony Bennett’s hit album Viva Duets. She is currently on an intensive tour of Brazil with her new album Guelã, which combines her rootsy singer-songwriter sound with samba, afrobeat and funk.
