“Intoxicating. Engaging. Irresistible.”
Brazilian American singer songwriter, Mônica da Silva has just released a new album, “Brasilissima” on Socialite Fiasco Music. “Brasilissima” draws from both the Brazilian and American cultures, and is a throwback to the days of Astrud Gilberto with plenty of modern elements and edge.
Putumayo Records is featuring Mônica’s first single “Aí Então, on their forthcoming compilation called “Brazilian Beat”, out now. Putumayo has already sold over 27 million of their renowned compilations worldwide, introducing the world to the music of many up and coming artists.
Best known for her multi-lingual music productions that span five languages - English, Portuguese, Spanish, Italian and French, you may have already heard some of Mônica’s music and not even realized it. Many of her songs have been featured on national and international commercials, and prime time shows on MTV, CBS, NBC, HGTV, E!, and The Style Network, just to list a few.
Mônica grew up between the USA and Belém, Brazil, a city on the Amazon River. Experiencing life in two very different places helped to shape Mônica's original sound, which is a blend of Bossa Nova, World Music and Indie Pop.
Teaming up her talents with guitarist and songwriting partner, Chad Alger, has led to an incredible energy and compatibility that is revealed in their live performances and on their album. “The music this couple produces flows from the stage like cool water mixed with fiery sparkles of passion.”
Miami’s Acontece Magazine, recently called Mônica’s music the “future of Bossa Nova with the face of youth today”.
