Marisa Monte

Brazilian vocalist, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and producer Marisa Monte is widely recognised as one of the greatest Brazilian singers of her generation.

Multi-award-winning singer Marisa Monte is credited with bringing samba right up to the present day by melding jazz, blues and funk rhythms into old-school samba rhythms. One of Brazil's most exciting stars in her own right and as a member of Tribalistas, bridging the gap between styles and musical generations and continuing to surprise the public with the originality and quality of her singing, composing, and staging.
