Maria Rita live in London - Saturday 28 June

Grammy Award winning samba singer Maria Rita is to perform her first ever UK show on Saturday 28 June at The Barbican.

Maria Rita is the daughter of Elis Regina - widely recognised as Brazil's all-time greatest singer and in my opinion one of the greatest singers of all time full stop.

30 year-old Maria Rita was self-taught and has been singing professionally for the last 6 years. She released her first album in 2003 and her third album was released late last year. She has a beautifully expressive voice and a sound very reminiscent of classic 60s and 70s MPB (Música Popular Brasileira)

This is Maria Rita's only UK date so if you're a fan of Brazilian music, make sure you don't miss it!
