Flora Purim and Airto Moreira
Brazil has spawned its fair share of great musicians, and Flora Purim and Airto Moreira are prime examples. The two have been married and living in the States since the late Sixties, collaborating regularly with renowned jazzmen such as Chick Corea, Herbie Hancock, Stanley Clarke, and Stan Getz. Purim won fame as an adventurous and golden-voiced singer in the vein of Sarah Vaughn, while the virtuosity of Moreira, a leader of several prominent free jazz groups such as the Killer Bees, helped make percussion a fixture on the bandstand.
