About this Artist
By popular demand Marisa Monte returns to North America in the October 2023! After the triumphant kick-off to her world tour back in March 2022, the Brazilian diva took her spectacular Portas Tour to sold out venues across Europe and Brazil and will finally return to the US in the Fall of 2023.
Releasing one wildly successful album after another, Marisa Monte is recognized as the greatest Brazilian singer of her generation. A 5-time Latin GRAMMY winner, her music blends samba, pop, jazz and soul, all featuring her exquisite voice. She will perform songs from her latest release Portas and many of her classic hits. With direction and visual design by Marisa Monte, Cláudio Torres and Batman Zavareze, on stage Marisa is accompanied by Dadi (bass, keyboard and guitar), Davi Moraes (guitars), Pupillo (drums), Pretinho da Serrinha (percussion, cavaquinho and vocals), Chico Brown (keyboard, guitar, bass and vocals), Antonio Neves (trombone, brass adaptations and arrangements), Eduardo Santanna (trumpet and flugelhorn) and Lessa (flute and sax). In addition to the songs from the new album, the show's repertoire highlights important moments in the singer-songwriter's career spanning more than three decades.
Marisa Monte holds a special position Brazil’s rich pop-music culture. She has always been a stand-out, an original, doing her own unique work at her own pace. She has sold millions of albums worldwide and is one of a very few Brazilian singers of her generation with an international audience. She was even named Rolling Stone Brasil's most important living Brazilian singer. And yet her vision is highly original and her richly melodic, subtle and complex music is intrinsically Brazilian.
As a young woman, Monte developed her burnished, silvery voice studying opera in Italy. She has collaborated with other major artists, from the bestselling Tribalistas trio she created with Carlinhos Brown and Arnaldo Antunes to more recent projects with innovative Argentine producer and composer Gustavo Santaolalla. In the summer of 2021 she released a brand new album, her first since 2011, which features several collaborations, including Oscar winner Jorge Drexler and singer/actor Seu Jorge.
