Vocalist Anita Coelho shares contemporary arrangements of lesser-known bossa nova tunes from many of Brazil 's most celebrated composers, such as Chico Buarque, Tom Jobim, Joyce, Toninho Horta, Milton Nascimento, Vinícius de Moraes, and Paulinho da Viola. Always backed by a sensational line-up of expert players, including Sérgio Brandão on guitar, Alexei Tsiganov on piano, Gilad Barkan on bass, and Renato Malavasi on Drums, Coelho sings in bossa nova, chorinho and samba de raiz styles of Brazilian music.
