Maria de Fátima :: Toda Menina Baiana

Born in Rio de Janeiro, musician Maria de Fátima worked with artists such as Milton Nascimento, Gilberto Gil, Arthur Verocai, Flora Purim, and others, but it wasn’t until she and her husband relocated to Uruguay that she recorded her sole release, 1981’s Bahia com H. Teaming up with local synth legend Hugo Fattoruso and a cast of Uruguayan players, Fátima crafts a record that is Música popular brasileira at its finest—breezing boldly through jazz, folk, Candombe, and exotica-inflected takes . . .
