Musical Interlude: Marisa Monte, Brazilian Diva

DIVA: The word entered the English language in the late 19th century. It is derived from the Italian noun diva, a female deity. The basic sense of the term is "goddess" = MARISA MONTE.

Marisa Monte interprets a couple of songs by singer-songwriter Paulinho da Viola. Together, they’re Brazilian musical royalty and, honestly, it doesn’t get much better than this. Marisa is mesmerizing … (Dig that cuíca solo, too!)

Para Ver As Meninas

Marisa Monte: Desilusão (duet with Paulinho da Viola)
