Essential hip-swinging 'Sambalanço' from the siren of new-school samba, 'Miss Balanço' is a full on rootsy samba record revitalised by the bold and beautiful Clara Moreno. The dancing girl for a contemporary Brazil turns her sensuous vocal to a genre she was born to re-interpret. Building on her critically acclaimed UK debut 'Meu Samba Torto' this captivating Brazilian star delivers her finest work to date, breathing life in to samba classics. Clara's mother and Brazilian music icon Joyce produced the album and features alongside legends João Donato, Skowa and Orlandivo. 'Miss Balanço' is an essential recording that looks back but with brilliant originality. Balance and passion, beauty and freedom, 'Miss Balanço' is the perfect Brazilian Dancing Girl. A true carioca Clara Moreno embodies her image. This 'sambalanço' recording encompasses all while swinging with the samba spirit that runs deep through Clara - 'Miss Balanço' for a contemporary Brazil. This is music in the image of its maker. Clara Moreno is as gripping to watch as she is compelling to listen to. As one of her many swirling tattoos declares 'Paz et Musica' (Peace and Music) it's what she and many Brazilians devote themselves to. This jubilant long-player infuses samba and bossa nova with African traditions and jazz instrumentation, celebrating samba's renaissance as the enduring rhythm of Brazilian life with a modern and unique twist.
