One of the most accomplished artists to come out of Brazil in the '90s, Daniela Mercury combines the percolating percussion of her native Bahia with the fever of rock & roll. Although she has yet to achieve any real success in the United States, she is a bona fide superstar in Brazil, and in her live shows, she boasts the pyrotechnical self-assuredness of a pop star like Ricky Martin. Surrounded by a solid core of swinging percussionists, she flexes her powerhouse vocal chords, aided by an electrifying horn section and a few backup vocalists.
This concert album reveals Mercury in all her effervescent live glory, and it is especially recommended for listeners who are not familiar with her explosive style. Mercury is also a gifted composer of catchy hooks, as the opening track "Eletrica" amply demonstrates. And she spices the program up with selections by Brazil's most notorious songwriters, from Caetano Veloso and Gilberto Gil to newer sensation Carlinhos Brown.
