Maria Rita

It's no wonder Brazilian singer Maria Rita is an eclectic bossa nova baby. She suckled from the breast of Brazil's all-time greatest female singer, the late Elis Regina, and she was raised by her father, pianist/composer Cesar Camargo Mariano. Considered a South American Norah Jones, Rita's music rocks like a tropical São Paulo lullaby. Her repertoire is a soothing combination of organic folklore and jazz, alternating between old Brazilian classics and newer numbers. Last year she was a three-time Latin Grammy winner, receiving awards for Best New Artist, Best MBP (Música Popular Brasileira) Album, and Best Brazilian Song for her version of Milton Nascimento's "A Festa."
