Miss Balanço

Issue No. 2163

Clara Moreno’s new album Miss Balanço is a return to the rootsy “Sambalanço”—samba with dancing. It evokes the steamy old-school clubs of Lapa, Rio de Janerio.

Clara’s mother, the Brazilian music icon Joyce, produced the album.

It features Brazilian music legends João Donato, Skowa and Orlandivo, who, along with Moreno’s sultry voice, warm brass and rolling percussion, breathe new life into samba classics.
