Elza Soares – Nos Braços do Samba
Tapecar 1975



Een van de grootste samba diva’s die Brazilië kent is zonder
twijfel Elza Soares. Met haar 80 jaar treedt ze nog op, maakt
zelfs nog platen, onverwoestbare artieste. Ze wordt ook wel
Brazilië’s Tina Turner genoemd. De elpee die we hier hebben
komt uit 1975, de clip is uit 2015. Check haar op het web..

One of Brazil’s biggest samba stars is without any doubt Elza
Soares. 80 years of age she still performs, still produces records,
she is simply indestructible. They call her Brazil’s Tina Turner.
The album we’ve got here today is from 1975, the clip from 2015.
Go and search for her on the web, massive career..

    Thanks for more samba. Moos. Elza is wonderful. She is one of the great Carioca – Samba – Brasileira voices of all time. She also channels (very consciously) Louis Armstrong and Elsa Fitzgerald. Everyone should read the Wikipedia entry — an amazing story: 6 children (the first when she was 13), an incredible, 60-years long career as a star singer. Beyond Louis Armstrong (a direct influence), think Dinah Washington. Elza’s lover (and scandale d’amour) in the ’50s was Garrincha, the peer of Pele — Dinah’s was Dick “Night Train” Lane, the great defensive end for the Detroit Lions. Toggle back and forth between Elza and Dinah — not a bad way to spend an hour or two.
