I have received e-mails from people wanting to know who are my favorite Brazilian singers. This is a list I had put in my site months ago. I added a couple of artists here. To tell you the truth this is a small list of what I love. There are so many great Brazilian singers...The singers below are famous at least in Brazil, and some internationally, so I also will make a list of not so famous brazilian singers that I love soon.
Of course, I'm always adding to the list:
Marisa Monte- she is the queen!
Céu-really cool and wonderful voice!
Cibele and Bebel Gilberto- I think both are very creative!
Caetano, Djavan and Gil- They are the icons of Brazilian music. I love Caetano's voice!
Milton Nascimento- I love his melodies first! Milton is another icon! Great voice!
Lenine- I'm a fan!
Daniela Mercury- I think the tone of her voice is just gorgeous! Brazilian dance music queen!
Rosa Passos- One of Bossa's top singers!
And, of course Elis Regina. I actually had forgotten about her until my friend Clarissa read this list on my website and pointed it out to me. I know, don't kill me here! I love Elis Regina! She is actually considered one of the best, if not the best, brazilian singer that ever existed. How marvelous her musicality and voice .... I have to say, although I love her, I still say that Marisa Monte is the queen, at least in my life! Maybe because Elis is not from my generation and Marisa served as the soundtrack to my life since I was a teen.
I will be posting more as I remember all the names. Above is just a few of them. I'm always discovering and rediscovering artists that touch my soul and bring joy and depth to my life!
