Born in New York City, but raised in Rio de Janeiro, music was an integral part of her childhood, her father the legendary Brazilian guitarist João Gilberto a strong influence. At the age of 7, she made her recording début on her mother Miúcha's first solo album, The Best of Two Worlds. Two years later, she performed at Carnegie Hall with her mother and Stan Getz.
Fast forward twenty-seven years to the year 2000, when Ms. Gilberto released the luminous Tanto Tempo (a few cuts of which you'll find directly below), and an entrancing, sensual neo-bossa nova jazz star was born.
