Baby Do Brasil

Baby do Brasil is considered one of the biggest Brazilian singers, and a music legend who has been revolutionizing the history of the Popular Brazilian Music (MPB). Baby is famous for her soft, indescribable and unique voice, and strong rhythmic versatility not only in her ballads but also in her electric songs. The success of her lyrics, like in “Sem Pecado e Sem Juízo”, “Cósmica”, “Telúrica” among many other ones, and interpretations of other artist’s songs like in “Menino do Rio” (Caetano Veloso), “Brasileirinho” (Waldir Azevedo), “Todo Dia Era Dia de Índio” (Jorge Ben Jor), among others, put her on the mainstream audience nationally and internationally. She deservingly earned the recognition of specialized critics.

After her performance in LA, she was featured in The Los Angeles Times saying that “She has the fury and the fire of the Latin Janis Joplin”.



She began her career along with Moraes Moreira, Galvão, Paulinho Boca de Cantor and Pepeu Gomes, artists that are considered nowadays some of the biggest names in the country. With them she created the Novos Baianos group.



The band started in 1970. Their second album “Acabou Chorare”, made them reach the national media. It was elected by the Rolling Stones magazine, among 100 specialized critics, as the best album of Brazilian music of all times. After the success of the music movements of Bossa Nova and Tropicalismo, the Novos Baianos was recognized as the new Brazilian music movement with the fusion of all styles of Brazilian roots with the appearance of a new artistic language that has been influencing the new generation.

In 1978, Baby do Brasil started her solo career. Her first album “O Que Vier Eu Traço” was a big success in the media and sales under the Warner label. It was an explosion everywhere in Brazil.

Her first big national hit was “Menino do Rio”, written exclusively for her by Caetano Veloso, a song that in her voice became a Popular Brazilian Music classic. It was released in her second album, which would later become a new sales champion.

“Baby is a main reference in the history of the Brazilian female singing. Novos Baianos, Baby and Pepeu, Baby do Brasil. Today she has incorporated all the group of the public personas that she has created and, most importantly, she sings better than ever.” Caetano Veloso, one of the biggest Brazilian composers of all time.

Baby had participated in big international festivals, three times in the famous Montreux Jazz Festival in Switzerland. Of course, we can’t forget to mention the Rock in Rio festival in Rio de Janeiro when she surprised all the audience by coming up on stage eight months pregnant and flaunting her irreverence and exuberance, a trademark of hers.

When she became Christian, she started to compose Christian songs with all passion, attesting once again to her versatility and daring personality, and setting her up for the new music segment “Brazilian Worship”.

She made a promise to her audience to release by the end of 2015 a new CD consisting of Christian songs recorded in English. It was to be produced by no less than the well-known keyboardist and producer, Tom Brooks.

Her recent work “Baby Sucessos”, a project idealized and directed by her son Pedro Baby, a successful guitarist and composer himself, premiered at the Jockey Club Brasileiro by the end of 2012 in front of an estimated crowd of 5000 people. Since then, Baby has been selling out tickets in the biggest venues in the country, resulting in the making of her much-awaited CD and DVD. For the enjoyment and happiness of her fans, she finally launched her new CD and DVD called “A Menina Ainda Dança” and it’s been selling in the main stores of Brazil also on Itunes.
