Mônica da Silva
Mônica da Silva is a Brazilian American singer songwriter who mixes Bossa Nova with Indie to create her own sound, which Mônica describes as Indie Nova. She neatly brings together her Brazilian and American sides, making softly sensual indie pop that casts its tendrils around Rio MPB (Brazilian popular music). “Da Silva is doing something unique with Brazilian music, following her own Muse, and sounding spectacular ”, says Chris Nickson (The NPR Curious Listener’s Guide To World Music). Putumayo World Music included Mônica’s “Aí Então” on their compilation “Brazilian Beat”.
Mônica's song "That's Not The Way" was just featured in the ESPN coverage of the World Cup 2014. She is currently in the studio recording a brand new EP, a follow-up to her 2011 release “Brasilissima”. [+]
