I was browsing new Brazilian compositions when I found a great CD called Doces Cariocas and when I heard a song called Chuvisco on the disc, I had to find out who sang it. After I did a little digging, I pulled up a little info on this beautiful singer, which I’ll post below.
“Born in Washington DC, Brazilian-American singer/songwriter Alexia Bomtempo has lived most of her 23 years of age in Rio de Janeiro. After studying voice in New England for 3 years, Alexia returned to Brazil, where she has been performing frequently at well-known clubs in the music circuit. Her many songwriting partners include Pierre Aderne, Dadi and Mú Carvalho, among others. With a voice that has been described as a delight to contemporary Brazilian popular music, Alexia recently got signed to EMI for her first album called “Astrolábio”, which was produced by Dadi.”
I’ll post a few Youtube videos and a picture I found on the Brazilian internet portal UOL. She’s definitely one to watch out for!
