Bebel Gilberto
The multi-Grammy-nominated Bebel Gilberto released her latest album, Tudo, in August of 2014 --her first studio recording in five years. Tudo, which means "everything" in English, showcases Bebel's ethereal vocals and wistful, dreamy songwriting in each of the CD's 12 tracks. Bebel splits her time between Rio de Janeiro and New York City and she's exquisitely synthesized musical influences from both cities in every track. Bebel's sultry tonality is constant throughout Tudo as are the warm and playful Brazilian rhythms that include the berimbau, wood bongos and shakers. The gorgeous melodies are shaped by touches of electronica, and Bebel's intimate vocals hint at a fantastical Rio de Janeiro.

Bebel's life-long eclectic musical tastes are made palpable when listening to Tudo. In addition to living and breathing all types of Brazilian musical styles as a child, she was exposed to the greats, from Debussy to Prince; Michel Legrand to Billie Holliday; Bjork to Gershwin. Also evident on Tudo some tracks for than others, is her love for North American Soul music. She discovered Donna Summer, Earth Wind and Fire, and Michael Jackson on the dance floor as a budding teenager. "The whole disco thing plays a big role in my heart," says Bebel, who still loves to dance.

Tudo musicians include Masa Shimizu on guitars, who is one of Bebel's longest running collaborators, "He can read my mind!" says Bebel. Didi Gutman of Brazilian Girls fame plays piano and percussionist Mauro Refosco plays a variety of drums and even bottle caps. Liminha, who was part of Mutantes, also co-produced Tudo, along with Kassin, who plays electric and acoustic bass and guitars. And the extremely talented Miguel Atwood-Ferguson created the string arrangements, as well as a magical new sound, which according to Bebel was the cherry on top of the cake.
