My Producer's Notes

Listen to The Sounds of Brazil every three hours beginning at 6am Central Time daily.

No doubt about it: We've come to expect great things from Rosalia de Souza since her early days as a stable singer for the Milan-based label, Schema.

Her solo career began with the New Bossa gem 'Garota Moderna' (Modern Girl) and she quickly won fans worldwide as the buzz heated up! Born in Rio de Janeiro, a move to Italy helped her to find a creative place with a group of like-minded musicians - including Nicola Conte and Toco  - who were focused on Bossa Nova's reinvention and the Brazilian groove scene.

She travelled back to Rio for the opportunity to record with Roberto Menescal, returned to Rome to record her critically acclaimed 'D'Improvissimo' in 2009 and now once again has chosen to make Rio her home. With three superb recordings as a solo performer and mor than 50 appearances on various compilations, it's clear that as an artist, de Souza has created her niche as opposed to finding it.

Her music plays to the notions of tradition as seen through a 21st Century prism, and Brazilian music is all that much better for it. Get to know his music with a quick visit to her Brazil Club page!
