JUNE 23 & 24 — Fillmore Miami Beach at 8pm

Marisa Monte is known best for her exquisite voice as well as her international popularity, yet she’s also accomplished in other realms such as songwriting, production, and collaboration.  Born Marisa de Azevedo Monte on July 1, 1967, in Rio de Janeiro, she grew up in a musical environment.  Her father Carlos Monte, was a cultural director at the Portela samba school and immersed her in Rio’s time-honored samba tradition.

Classically trained in opera singing, she was surrounded by the sounds of the Portela samba school, and combines diverse influences into her music. While most of her music is in the style of modern MPB (Música Popular Brasileira), she has also recorded traditional sambas and folklore tunes, and songs by Marvin Gaye and Lou Reed.

In 2006, she debuted Infinito Particular, which featured songs written in collaboration with partners such as Seu Jorge and Adriana Calcanhotto.

Visiting only two cities this year, Miami and NYC, catch a live performance at the Fillmore Miami Beach.

Tickets start at $48.50
