Having lived and breathed the music of her native Rio de Janeiro since birth, the souls of the great samba, bossa-nova, MPB and Tropicalia titans resonate in Clara Moreno's voice today. Clara's parents Joyce Moreno and Nelson Angelo are two of those titans, whose own careers have had a colossal influence on the shape and sound of Brazilian music since the 1960s.
A reimagining of Samba Esquema Novo, the seminal debut album release by Jorge Ben (1963), is Clara's spectacular tribute to her heritage, both musically and personally. This fresh take on the album that opened up new avenues for samba and bossa, is Clara's third album release for Far Out Recordings, following the critically acclaimed Meu Samba Torto (2007) and Miss Balanco (2009).
