Balance and passion, beauty and freedom, 'Miss Balanço' is the perfect Brazilian Dancing Girl. Clara Moreno embodies her image. A true carioca (daughter of Rio) born to make dancing music, Clara grew up immersed in Brazilian beats from samba to bossa nova, acid-jazz to psychadelia, folk to tropicalia. 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 a bold and beautiful character - 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.
