Monica Passos: Lemniscate
Label: Archie Ball
Monica passos, guitar, voice; Emmanuel Bex, Organ; Archie Shepp, saxophone
"Brazilian, exuberant, mocking, Mônica Passos plays with her voice's assets : it is full, strong and with a natural artistic elegance. Demanding actress, the singer alleviates the most severe melodies, (...) breaks the ice with the first octave cleared and has done with her brazilian clichés. She is one of the most original world music artists living in Paris."
