An original bossa, rare and special in the way it is performed and composed, with beautiful female vocals.
Vanessa was born in Sao Paulo, Brazil, of Portuguese and Russian parents. She had a classical background and sang Mozart in a church choir at school. She was drawn to the country music of NE Brazil and started a forro (popular music from that region) band in the 90s.
