Elis Regina Carvalho Costa (March 17, 1945 – January 19, 1982), known professionally as Elis Regina (Brazilian Portuguese: [eˈlis ʁeˈʒinɐ]), was a Brazilian singer of popular and jazz music. She is also the mother of the singers Maria Rita and Pedro Mariano.She became nationally renowned in 1965 after singing "Arrastão" (composed by Edu Lobo and Vinícius de Moraes) in the first edition of TV Excelsior festival song contest and soon joined O Fino da Bossa, a television program on TV Record. She was noted for her vocalization as well as for her interpretation and performances in shows. Her recordings include "Como Nossos Pais" (Belchior), "Upa Neguinho" (E. Lobo and Gianfrancesco Guarnieri), "Madalena" (Ivan Lins), "Casa no Campo" (Zé Rodrix and Tavito), "Águas de Março" (Tom Jobim), "Atrás da Porta" (Chico Buarque and Francis Hime), "O Bêbado e a Equilibrista" (Aldir Blanc and João Bosco), "Conversando no Bar" (Milton Nascimento). Her untimely death, at the age of 36, shocked Brazil.Wikipedia
When I was a kid I loved going through other people’s record collections and playing new albums. I remember discovering Roger Whitaker, Marty Robbins and Dr. Hook at my aunt’s house. My parents collection lead me to Fleetwood Mac, Willie Nelson, Sam Cooke, Mohamed El-Bakker & His Oriental Ensemble, Waylon Jennings, Barbra Streisand, Santana and Bette Midler. My sister’s collection turned me on to the Bee Gees, Peter Frampton, .38 Special, Elton John and Bad Company. Today I realized that I am loving this web site so much because each day feels like pulling a new record out of someone’s unexplored record collection. A new album cover appears and I instantly begin to speculate on what exciting new listening experience is next… Like the wildly random listening experiences of my youth, after listening to the Yeah Yeah Yeahs and Aerosmith out pops some smooth, jazzy Brazilian music from the 70s. And jazzed I am! Halfway through this album my stress had melted away and the morning was looking great! Elis Regina’s vocal delivery is always spot-on. The arrangements are never boring. The supporting vocals fantastic. I love this album so much. This is another perfect listening experience is a week of perfect listening experiences. I would have replayed VENTO DE MAIO over and over as a kid, and have already started doing so as an adult. From the interesting key of the opening song “Vento de Maio” through the glorious choir in “O Trem Azul” to the groovy guitar and scatting in the closing song “Aprendendo a Jogar” I enjoyed every note. A truly wonderful album!
What a mysterious album. Not on Spotify, not on Wikipedia, not by an artist I've ever heard of. Turns out it's a posthumous compilation, and she's a Brazilian legend. And let it be known, I'm floored. It's like proggy funky samba Amy Winehouse, but also there's disco and rock infusions too. I can't get over how good it is, especially on the back half. Only rating it 4 stars because I don't believe in the 5 Star Compilation, but this is up there, and definitely makes me want to check out her full albums.
These songs are so bold and fearless, so exciting! I love this!
For those having troubles I used this Youtube Playlist. Not 100% sure it's correct but seems to line up with what I can find online https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLrQRSk_JRU4W7Q_eIs1MCp4Mpvk3EYjX8
First (and hopefully last) album that wasn't available on Apple Music. I really liked this though! Sounded much more modern and swinging than what I would have expected from a world music album. Very engaging beats, good singing. Not too much that stuck with me, but still some great songs to pull from here. I'll never say no to some Latin Jazz! Favorite songs: Vento de Maio, Nova Estacao, O Trem Azul. Album art: I like this picture, especially the color grading. Too bad I won't see it on my phone for the tracks I saved. 4/5
Wow. What an amazing voice. It felt like I was listening to a soap opera, but a good one. So much drama and emotion. I don't speak Portuguese so it might have been a drama about trapped wind or tumble dryers for all I know, but I don't think it was. When it came up this morning I thought "oh no this will be bossa boring", but I actually loved it.
Kinda surprised to see this album vs "Elis & Tom" or one of her albums from the 60s or early 70s. Favorite track is "O Que Foi..."
A mystifying choice—including a compilation is not something I expected nor really appreciate but I did enjoy my listen somewhat
Elis has a beautiful voice, I'm very happy this website is introducing me to more different kinds of music! My favourite has to be "Só Deus é Quem Sabe" her voice is so soft and tender, with the swirling instrumentation it is certainly divine! Quite a lovely album, may revisit in the future, but certainly not at the top of my list.
Es un disco muy tranquilo, para escuchar una tarde de verano en la terraza tomando un Gin Tónic. Dentro del genero de la música brasileña es interesante y reconocido en su tierra pero aún así no creo que pueda marcar profundamen. Lo que sí se puede decir es que puede ser una puerta a conocer más música Brasileña. Dentro del repertorio de canciones del disco la que más me ha gustado ha sido Tiro Ao Álvaro.
totally unsure if this album is good or bad in its genre, but regardless of the language barrier, wasn't feeling it
Incrível. Um clássico para ouvir muitas vezes!
So dope! What a fun trip. It's definitely got a standard latin music vibe, but also a dreamy jazzy breathy fun thing going on. The whole album reminds me of that one song by Stereolab...Rainbow Conversation.
Ok, so this album (or what I assume is this album, because I couldn't find this album, but I found an album that has this song) is incredible. I am totally getting this shit on vinyl and will be cooking and hosting people to this shit.
Fuck yeah. O Medo De Amar O Medo De Ser Livre is an absolute tune and a half. Whole album 10/10 tight, funky, big lead breaks, huge voice and perfectly paced. Aprehendo a Jogar and Sai Dessa also biggies. I wish I spoke Portuguese
Really cool and definitely worth coming back to for another listen. 9
wow! I was expecting like regular Bossa nova but this was way cooler. Beautiful vocals and nutty music. 10
Bossa Nova 💖
Again never heard of this artist but loved Brazilian jazz tunes.
Buenísimo, siempre es bueno escucharlo.
Wow. This is something very special. Wow. She is soulful beyond belief, channeling something that the rest of us aren't in touch with. I adored every song but Rebento stopped me in my tracks. Tremendous!
Not familiar with the artist at all. First listen for the album and it was wonderful!! I found myself dancing and smiling a lot as I listened. So much fun!
I love it when you grow fonder with each listen. I didn't get enough time with this today, but I made my mother and son listen to it, and that made three generations who enjoyed it. I was so happy to be introduced to Elis Regina today. I look forward to spending lots more time with her. My first favorite today had to be "Só Deus É Quem Sabe." Really took me to a dreamland.
Incredible! I have never heard of this artist, I have never heard of Brazilian jazz or whatever this is. But the music is just great. And the singer is incredible even though I do not understand the language she sings in, and the music just has a great jazz punk rock fusion going on. Like a cosmic gumbo.
This mystery of an album is absolutely beautiful.
Yooooooo this absolutely did not need to be as good as it is. Incredible and the best album I’ve encountered for the first time on this little album of the day quest!
Beautiful bossa nova there was seamless transitions between the tracks, absolutely loved it! Her voice was amazing, and I loved all the tracks!
This is breath in album form.
Such energy and emotion, I love it !
Um ótimo álbum, com grandes clássicos da Elis. Melhores músicas: Tiro ao álvaro, Só Deus é quem sabe e se eu quiser falar com Deus.
I am not well versed in Spanish at all, but I thought that this album was awesome. So full of energy and passion; you can tell the artist genuinely cares about what she does here (and is good at it).
First impression: wow, this first song has me hooked right from the start! This album is super tight; really jazzy and funky, polished production, and just tons of great little musical moments and riffs. I'm pretty blown away; first song was a 5/5, and the rest of the record backed it up. Last track is such a banger!
Makes me want to put on a bright red summer dress, book a flight to Brazil and blast this album while sitting by the beach with a cocktail in hand, dancing my cares away to its refreshing tunes and Elis Regina's smooth voice. In the wise words of Trinity the Tuck, I don't know what the fuck she's saying but girl, I am living!
What. An. Artist. 7.5-8/10
Brasilianische 70er. Teils Fahrstuhlmusik, rundum ganz gut
A good world album. Fun jazzy samba. Some slower tracks, but mostly a fun listen.
Now I can fuck with this
Some eaaaaasy ass listening. Alright.
“Vento De Maio” by Elis Regina (1978) Great music in the genre of Brazilian jazz, but without a translation of the lyrics, it’s difficult for me to assess this as an album. Elis Regina’s voice is very nice, especially in the lowest end of her considerable range, almost if she has ‘pedal tones’ down there. She’s a little unsteady on pitch, but has excellent diction and fine command of very challenging melodies. She has fine vibrato, which, interestingly, she rarely uses, indicating she doesn’t rely on it for pitch control. Some of it you have to hear to believe. One of the huge strengths of this album is the glorious jazz orchestral arrangements, beautifully executing formidable time signatures, rhythmic shifts, and unusual harmonic colorings. Highly professional—and beautifully recorded and mixed. This, along with spare but tasteful backing vocals, makes it an excellent listening experience. Too bad this album is not available on in the iTunes Store (although there is a compilation album which has most of these songs. I bought it and plan to add it to my small but growing Brazilian jazz collection. I highly recommend Elis Regina. Tragic end at age 36, though. Don’t do drugs, folks. 4/5
8/10. Good length, and very engaging throughout
Great album. Amazing voice and style
Sounded so pretty! 8
My first exposure to Brazilian Pop. A+.
A really nice Brazilian jazz album with some great bass licks throughout. It has a calm lounge feel that would sound even better spinning in my living room. A great record that I will revisit over and over again.
Never heard of this before. Not my usual style, but it's good.
Снова внятная, мелодичная музыка. Чарующие танцевальные латиноамериканские ритмы и пронзительный голос несравненной Элис Режины скрасили мой вечер. Захотелось пройтись по побережью тёплого южного курорта и под бокал вина и насладиться закатом, держа за руку любимую женщину (нет). Но альбом норм, в общем.
haha latina woman go JIGGY JIGGY JIGGY JIGGY JIGGY JIGGY DAGA
ok this bops I don't understand but it's good . Favorites: Vento De Maio Sai Dessa O Trem Azul
I'm not sure what's happening, but I like it! A captivating listen, despite not understanding the lyrical piece. Generally fun and funky but both the emotional highs and lows are conveyed very well. In particular, "o medo de Amar" was definitely slapping!
Hey, an album in a language other than English. I like it; pop Latin jazz but that's a sound I'm a bit into, more than other kinds of jazz. Favourite track: "Vento de Maio"
nice to diversify my music into other languages, really enjoyed it
some nice vibes on this too
Helaas te weinig tijd gehad om goed te luisteren. Staat nog op de todo-lijst. Voorlopig 3 sterren.
Beautiful, timeless, and moody.
I like most world music albums I hear, and this one was no exception. It was good background music for kiddo and me while we played a card game.
Really nice, perfect for a dinner party.
Bossa-nova brasileña. Me ha gustado.
If you've ever seen the movie Home and recall how the Boove start dancing involuntarily when they hear music, well that was me with these tunes. Hip shaking music I love you.
The instruments are so crisp. I was expecting something that sounded a lot more dated. Now - there is a "Muzak" quality to it here and there, but overall - it's a jaunty little album. As I've said before, these world language albums are tricky because I focus much more on the sound than the lyrics due to my not understanding the native language. That can be a detractor since, as I said - while crisp, some of it sounds like it would play in a mall or elevator. Rebento had a Stevie Wonder meets Elton John thing going on, which I liked! Album really kicks in with the O Medo De Amar track that sounds like Steely Dan came in and backed it musically! This is probably one of my favorite non-English albums so far!
Мне понравилось. Ритмично, мелодично, немного психоделично.
I don't speak the same language, but I can still appreciate the gorgeousness of her voice. I deliberately didn't read much about the album either, but really enjoyed it. Didn't catch the names of any songs, or any of the guest vocalists, but a solid 4 ⭐ for me
Unexpectedly nice listen - also got me on to some great Milton Nascimento stuff.
Vraiment très bon, définitivement à réécouter. Un beau mélange de sons et une voix très belle. Se laisse écouter tout seul
Wonderful, very emotive vocals on top of diverse backing tracks; probably one of the best albums I hadn't heard off this list so far.
This is a very good selection of songs from Elis Regina to the international market, even though it's lot really clear for me where does it fits in her official discography. Nonetheless, it's a great showcase of her beautiful voice, her impressive range and her ability to make it work with a variaty of musical styles - MPB, samba and pop. This is the greatest voice of brazilian music and songs like "Rebento", "Se eu quiser falar com deus" and "Aprendendo a Jogar" makes it very clear.
Genre: MPB 4/5 This was quite the happy surprise. Once realizing this album, Vento de maio, was a sort of reissue/posthumous release of a not-as-well known Brazilian artist, Elis Regina, I wasn't sure what to expect. What I found was that I'm certainly a fan of MPB (música popular brasileira). Earlier in this exercise, I received an album from the Tropicália movement in Brazil (Caetano Veloso), which I enjoyed quite a lot. This I enjoyed even more! From Elis Regina's stunning voice, to the delightful mixture of dance tracks and ballads, to the top notch production methods utilized in these recordings, this album really took me for a spin. The title track is tremendous, with one of the best basslines so far out of the 80+ albums I've reviewed so far from this book. She can also slow it down and let her voice really take off on ballads like Rebento, one of my favorite tracks from the album. I was super happy as the album moved along, always giving me some musical nuggets of enjoyment from track to track. Really good shit.
so many funky, rhythmic, jazzy, sample-able segments and vocals
I am Brazilian, so I grew up with her. Her voice is just amazing. A prodigy, with a far too sad story. (7/10) FT: Tiro Ao Alvaro, O Que Foi Feito Devera, O Trem Azul
Another album by an artist I hadn't heard of before that blew me away. Lots of amazing stuff on this record
I liked this! Chill vibes and a great voice
Liking the first song.... Yeah, definitely pretty good through the first few This one was a nice surprise; nothing mind-blowing but I really enjoyed it and had no expectations going in...hurray!
I couldn't find this exact album but I listened to multiple Elis Regina albums. I enjoyed the hell out of them! I don't speak the language but her voice is quite soothing. She can really sing.
Pretty great listen but as someone else pointed out in another review, kind of cheating with it being a compilation album. Therefore this album on the 1001 book kind of feels similar to Legend by Bob Marley being ranked 48 on Rolling Stone's greatest albums of all time list.
I listened to this a while ago
this is the kind of music I came to this project for. this album doesn't exist according to Wikipedia and spotify lol. its like prog-funk? idk what to call it but its pretty badass. I like the variety of sounds on the album and different sections and stuff, its pretty cool.
Normally, with a 'world' music record, my review reads something like 'I font know enough to understand this, but I get that it's culturally important. With this, I'dsay it's made me want to go away and discover more about Eli's Regina and Brazilian music in general, so it's already a cut above some of the prior ones
Really cool. Put you in a good mood
I liked this. Definitely not my kind of normal listening, but I enjoyed it and would listen again. I liked the jazzy numbers most. 3.5/5
No IDEA what she's singing, but it's oh so joyful! Like an ethnic Stevie Wonder chick
A lot of fun
Strange but alright
this kind of foreign language upbeat wanky hipster-cafe jazz was just what i needed on a hungover thursday morning 3/5.
It was simply okay. She is/was a talented vocalist and some of the arrangements were nice, but I don’t need to hear again.
She's clearly a very talented singer with incredible artistic range. This didn't grab me, and that's as much about the music as it is the fact that it's a foreign language album. Best track: Tiro Ao Álvaro
Solid brasiliansk vokalist, pop/jazz, sydamerikansk
Not really my thing, but interesting.
Latin pop has some great rhythm and harmony. Well produced.
A fairly enjoyable, energetic listen! I actually really liked the opening track. Very good music to work to, but not many iconic tracks?
Ensikuuntelulla tämä toimi todella hyvin. Ehkä toisella kerralla taika oli vähän hälvennyt jostain syystä. Kuitenkin oikein pätevää ja positiivista jammailua miellyttävällä vokalistilla varustettuna.
Decent older Spanish jazz-blues stuff.
Kind of Jazz, kind of pop. I have a sad disconnect since I can’t understand what she’s singing. But, I like it.
Culturally I have no touchpoint here, it's nice though.
I couldn't find this album, I did listen to some songs from this artist and found the music charming and engaging.
I think some of this may be lost on me(through not understanding the lyrics *in spanish) but I have to say her voice is amazing and you can still feel the emotion coming through. The instrumentals are also very well done. I enjoyed this album, other than not understanding it.
It’s very good. Hints of disco. She aged into the late 70’s nicely after some stellar early albums. 3.5.
Pleasant background music, at times funky. Fave track - "Aprendendo a Jogar" for the wacky backing vocals
Really liking her voice!
Classic Brazilian music - I generally like the genre and this was alright. 6/10.
This Brazilian pop album is pleasant enough, Regina has a lovely voice and range but I don’t think it is up to the high standards of David Byrne’s Lauka Bop label where complies a killer record featuring seminal Brazilian artists like Caetano Veloso, Jorge Ben, Gilberto Gil, Milton Nascimento etc. Now that is a banger of a Brazilian record.
There was a higher than normal barrier for entry on this album but once that hurdle was crossed, I really liked this one. Me te amo latin jazz. I'm not sure if this is as jazzy as it is upbeat but these are the songs I picture playing on the little radios in the shopping center in an island town. When I listen to this I'm on island time but there were some I wasn't a fan of. I'd say this was my least favorite of these albums we have heard so far but that is not a knock.
So, I’m wondering, with the zillions of Brazilian artists out there, how they make the decision which few to add to this list. Anyway, Regina has a beautiful voice and I like the variety of styles and arrangements. Spotify says this from ‘98 which I thought was odd, but it’s actually from ’78.
Foreign language, not a problem. Energetic, Latin style music. Good to listen to in background. Didn't engage hugely with this one.
Pleasant. I don't think I would listen again though...
I've never heard of this. Should be interesting.
I had a harder time getting into this than I thought I would. Interesting that this stands out a little against a lot of other Brazilian music and that bossa nova style. I wish I could understand the lyrics. I might have to relisten to really start to feel it
Pitkästä aikaa arvostelemassa. Monesti olen näistä naisartisteista tykännyt, mutta tämä ei ihan osunut. Oli vähän turhan suoraviivaista tuuttaamista, puuttui herkkyys ja tunnelma. Erikoisempaa kieltä oli tietysti kiva fiilistellä, mutta tuskimpa tulee jatkossa kuunneltua. Ei ärsyttänytkään, joten pistetään kolkki-polkki!
Very cool guitar and a few groovy tunes, but slower songs were a a bit cringy Tiro ao álvaro & Ao medo de Amar highlights
Violões bacanas; instrumental legal; mas não curto muito a voz dela quando grita nem as músicas que são samba. A voz suave dela é maravilhosa. Melhores: Só Deus é Quem Sabe e Nova Estação
too cheesy for my taste buds.
This was nice, but not really my tempo. Not understanding the language is also a barrier for me to really get into it, but makes for nice background music.
it was fun, varied. wasn't sure what to expect but liked it.
A pleasant listen, but nothing really stuck out to me.
The first few tracks really got me, but the middle tracks were kinda boring. The last 2 tracks were pretty good
interesting listen, definitely not my normal but kind of dug it.
Beautiful voice, very cool jazzy sound. Clearly an evolution from bossa nova, the album has a pop feel with a cool Latin groove throughout. I don’t speak a bit of Portuguese so the lyrics are lost on me, but the singing makes up some for the message being lost on me.
A lovely change from the other 70s albums on this list.
La instrumental mola me falta la caipirinha
Really enjoyed this album. A nice change of pace.
meh muy suave
Swinging Brazilian pop!
I love the tropical vibe this album gives. Cool production I just don't see myself going back to it 5/10.
Hard to review an album in a language I don't know, but the music was nice. 2.5/5
Well that was delightful
Anders dan te titel doet vermoeden zal dit album wel niet over mayonaise gaat. Muziek en zang vind ik wel heel relaxt. Beetje als muziek in een TV programma over vakanties in Italie en zo. Ik denk dat ik de titelsong "Vento De Maio" nog een van de leukere nummers vind, maar er zijn helaas ook veel saaie liedjes. ***
Fine. Not really what I listen to where Brazilian music is concerned - more into their fusion and samba (will we have any Jorge Ben Jor, I wonder?) scenes than tropicalia. Tasteful, smooth and jazzy in equal parts, but disappeared from memory almost the moment it finished. Something something seduced by a teacher something.
Very pleasant. Some interesting harmonic structures and chord progressions.
A few really interesting tracks on here - the opening son and Sai Dessa and Outro Cais, but there's a lot of fluff too. Was fun to listen to but probably won't go back outside of a few standout tracks. A strong 3.5 but not quite a 4 in my eyes.
i love the first song wow! this seems like i'd enjoy it much more if i was listening while it was sunny and not at night but it truly is a lovely album, i know i say this often but the instruments wow
Great vocals and arrangement with catchy melodies, despite language barrier.
I enjoyed this album especially when acoustic guitar was the principal instrument. She has a lovely powerful voice 3 🌟
Not exactly my thing, but she does have a powerful voice. And some of the tracks are particularly funky.
Enjoyed it more than I expected, but tough with it not being English.
Didn’t understood a word of it. Beautiful melodies, varied rhythms. Original and much enjoyed
Very nice and pretty, but not the kind of thing I would listen to
Unusual, different from what I typically expect in Brazilian music. Elis Regina has a really lovely voice. Fave Songs: So Deus e Quem Sabe, Tiro Ao Alvaro, Nova Estacao, Sai Dessa, Vento de Maio
This was satisfactory background music for me.
Such a cool eclectic variety of sounds on this album. Jazz, funk, soul, Latin, and 90s alternative all in one. A unique listen!
Not my style but it was enjoyable enough.
Great fusion going from bossaniva to jazz and funk and not the other way around like most other bossanova sounding records on the list
good brazilian music
Latin jazz, not bad but not one to listen to again
Pop. Bossa Nova
Pleasant to listen to.
Easy to listen to but nothing standout. Apparently the nation mourned when she died so young.
I'm always excited to see an album that I've never heard of on here. There's nothing like the feeling of falling in love with an album that you didn't know existed just minutes before. I didn't fall in love with this album, but still the sentiment remains. Part of the problem with this album was that I don't have any context for why it's important. Wikipedia was no help, since this album isn't even listed on her Wikipedia page. It's pleasant enough, but there was nothing to really draw me in. Part of the problem was that the tone on the bass and guitar were sounds that I associate with muzak. Not bad, and perhaps not her fault, but still sounds that I associated with low effort music designed to fade into the background. Here vocals are good, but not sufficient to explain to me why this album is considered notable 3/5
Definitely a fun and pleasant listen, but I didn’t really connect to it much honestly, outside of a few select songs.
Definitely better than the Brazilian album we had yesterday - has a lot more edge to it, and attitude. Think it just sneaks a three, although not sure I'd ever listen to it again.
Parts of this I liked. The last track was fun in particular.
3.4 - Some cool tracks on here (e.g. “Rebento”) but overall it means too heavily in the realm of smooth jazz and quiet storm. I listens to the record a second time and found myself skipping many of the songs.
Nice, calming music. Nothing more, nothing less, but that's a hell of an achievement on its own. P.S. Is it me, or are the only exceptions to English this list will allow (while pretending the rest of the world doesn't exist) come from Brazil?
Nice change of pace. Not much else to add. 3 stars.
Ragbrai album 3: This album is going alongside Japanese city pop in my ambient road-trip music. Pleasantly passed 50 minutes on the trip back from mason city. Next to last song stood out
3 1/2 Bien!
Enjoyable, but unspectacular
Needs another listen. Nothing jumped at me, but the sound feels so exotic and familiar at the same time.
det är okej å
It’s a shame I don’t understand French, because I found the music charming and the vocals enticing. Any of these songs could be peppered into an indie film like a “(500) Days of Summer” to give it a bit of exotic flair. I think in English, my score would of been higher.
1978: Sai Dessa, Tiro Ao Álvaro
Some Brazilian music. it was ok for what it was but not really for me
I liked a few songs. 2/5
Didn't like it much, not what I'm looking for. It sounded pretty cool but I find it hard to listen to a full album of music I can't understand. 3/8, fav track NONE.
I think I liked it, but there wasn't anything that stood out
Just not my style. Brazilian music. But she has a cool voice and some of the songs are full of energy. Others are a bit sad.
Not our jam. Not bad, just...not for us.
Only non apple itunes one so far. The music was interesting, but never felt i was enjoying the groove from it. Pretty much all the up tempo tracks ruin the vibe for me, and not much worth revisiting here.
bit loungey and dul
not much to write home about
Had some fun parts, mostly interested in the instrumentals
Otro disco de música jazz y brasileña. No conocía a esta cantante, aunque seguro que la he escuchado sin saber quien era. Con una carrera tan corta (murió con 36 años) es lógico que no sea conocida para el público en general. Suena muy bien en general y "Tiro Ao Álvaro" es pura música tropical. "Saudade eterna" también me ha gustado. Para mi gusto ha sido interesante pero no es un disco al que vaya a volver.
Listened to the wrong album first, nothing that really stood out to me. Good vocals I guess and a song here or there that was kind of cool to listen to but not something I'd come back to.
El albúm tiene dos canciones que me han parecido muy originales, vento de maio y o que foi feito devera, son las que me han llamado la atención, el resto se pueden escuchar pero poco más, no es album que vaya a a volver a escuchar.
This album seems more expressive than other foreign language albums.
There are a few fun music bits here, but mostly this is pretty tedious. Perhaps it wouldn't feel that way if I knew the language, but I don't, so it does.
The Sims Buy Mode music
This was a first listen to an artist that I don’t know. Elis is talented, but the album wasn’t for me.
Not sure i listened to the correct album
Brazilian music is never unwelcome. A good thing, because I had to go looking for this one a little bit. I ended up settling on the Hemisphere release, which at least on Discogs is categorized as a European reissue of "Elis" from 1980. In any case, it displays a variety of styles by Elis, as one might expect from a compilation. That's nice, but the instrumentals tend to be pretty uninteresting: The percussion choices were especially flat for Brazilian music. O Medo De Amar... was a standout, and Aprendendo Jogar captures the spirit of play well and, I imagine, makes a good opener to the Brazilian release (with a different tracklist). Other than that I'd like to hear her voice on a more cohesive set of tracks.
