Maria Rita took the MPB world by storm in 2003 with her debut album,
winning all kinds of awards and crossing over abroad in light of her mammoth
success. The beautiful and beautiful-sounding young lady is the daughter of one
of Brazil's most (if not the most) legendary vocalists, the late Elis Regina,
and if that alone weren't enough to make her a star in waiting, her father is
César Camargo Mariano, one of the country's top arrangers, producers, and
pianists, and her namesake is Rita Lee, yet another MPB legend. Add to that a
close musical partnership with Milton Nascimento, who penned "A
Festa," the opening track of her debut album, and you can see why the MPB
world was eagerly awaiting her recording debut.
Born September 19, 1977, in São Paulo, Rita began singing professionally
at age 24. Her debut album, Maria Rita, released domestically in late 2003 and
internationally in 2004, spawned two big hits, the aforementioned "A
Festa" and "Cara Valente." On the heels of the album's
blockbuster success -- both critical and commercial -- Rita released a
similarly self-titled DVD that captures her 2004 live performance at Bourbon
Street in São Paulo. Among the awards won by Rita in 2004 were Latin Grammys
for Best New Artist and Best MPB Album. Rita's second album, Segundo (2005),
was even more popular than her first (selling over 700,000 copies in Brazil
alone), if not as critically acclaimed. A live DVD, Segundo ao Vivo, followed
in 2006. Rita's third album, Samba Meu (2007), was a change of style: a
collection of acoustic sambas. ~Bio by Jason Birchmeier
