Soulphonetics & Taxim present:

Mônica da Silva
bossa, samba, rock

Mônica da Silva very neatly brings together her Brazilian and American sides, making softly sensual indie pop that casts its tendrils around Rio MPB (Brazilian popular music). “Da Silva is doing something unique with Brazilian music, following her own Muse, and sounding spectacular ”, -Chris Nickson

Inspired by her experiences growing up between the Midwest, USA and Belém, Brazil, a city on the Amazon River, Mônica’s new album Brasilissima has touches of “samba and bossa, and even a small nod toward the very percussive axé music, but, along with partner Chad Alger, who shares playing, production and compositional credits, she’s created a hybrid that’s her own, and ridiculously addictive.”
