And here’s a little sample of the review by Soul Culture:
The Brazilian living legend singer Maria Rita shook a packed Koko house on Tuesday night amidst an electrified crowd of Brazilondoners, cameras ready to click and hips ready to samba from the word ‘go’ and ‘Maria’. She opened the stage-sky glittering in red and bathed in alternating shades of ocre, indigo, rasberry and emerald that accompanied our traveling with her, through no less than 20 songs, taken from her three albums, Maria Rita, Segundo and Samba Meu.
This tiny graceful woman began her singing stellar trajectory in 2003 upon the launch of her first album Maria Rita. Six latin Grammys on and numerous tours, Maria Rita returned to London after almost two years since her massive success at Barbican. For readers who do not know her yet, Maria Rita is the daughter of one of Brazil’s most illustrious woman singer Elis Regina. Her father is famed pianist, composer and arranger César Camargo Mariano. Maria Rita is in a class of her own independently from her ascendence. Hers is a success due to talent not inherited titles nor lush family funds.
