Roberta Sá with Baby do Brasil27 Jan
CELTIC CONNECTIONS PRESENTS: Roberta Sá with Baby do Brasil
With her spectacular performance at the Olympics’ closing ceremony, paying tribute to her late great compatriot Carmen Miranda, Roberta Sá became the breakout star of Rio 2016. Already adored at home, for her delectably sensuous voice and sophisticated treatments of traditional Brazilian sounds, she’s now taking Europe by storm with her 2015 album Delírio, self-styled as “a declaration of love to Brazilian music”.
A long-reigning queen of the hybrid contemporary genre known as Música Popular Brasileira, or MPB, Baby do Brasil ranks with her country’s best-loved and most versatile artists. Throughout a career spanning nearly five decades, she’s brought her unique voice, personality and passion to an ever-evolving yet unerringly classic blend of local styles – samba, choro, bossa – with pop, rock and jazz. “The fire and fury of a Latin Janis Joplin” (LA Times).
