Maria Rita

16 January 2012

Multi Latin Grammy winner Maria Rita’s hugely successful debut album Maria Rita went platinum, selling over a million copies worldwide, while her second album Segundo granted her two additional Latin Grammys for Best MPB album and Best Brazilian song, and took her across the world, including the Montreux Jazz and the North Sea Festival, as well as Irving Plaza in New York, and the San Francisco Jazz Festival.

The daughter of two icons of Brazilian music, Elis Regina and Cezar Camargo Mariano, began her singing career at the age of 24. While her third album Samba Meu, was a tribute to her country’s native samba, the concept for Elo was drawn from fan’s song requests at live performances.
