On her self-titled Grammy-winning debut, Brazilian Maria Rita shows that she is more than the daughter of the late Elis Regina. She has a talent and style of her own, which she proves through strong renditions of the bluesy "Não Vale a Pena" ("It's Not Worth It") and Milton Nascimento's percussion-based "A Festa" ("The Party"), while making Rita Lee's "Agora Só Falta Vocí" ("Now I Wait For You") her own by imbuing the timeless rock tune with a jazz-funk feel. Maria Rita is a must-have for anyone interested in contemporary Brazilian music.
