Since Music From Memory included one of its tracks on their fine Outro Tempo compilation earlier this year, Maria Rita's previously overlooked Brasiliera album - the artist's sole release - has become an in-demand album online. This reissue, then, has appeared at exactly the right time. It's a genuinely unique set of tracks, combining traditional Amazonian instrumentation and Rita's folksy Portuguese vocals with new age melodies, vintage 1980s synthesizer sounds and occasional bouts of drum machine-driven percussion. Even this description doesn't really do justice to its quirky brilliance. Basically, give it a listen - we guarantee you won't be disappointed.
