2006 album from the highly-acclaimed and commercially successful Brazilian performer/songwriter/producer.
Universo Ao Meu Redor (The Universe Around Me), co-produced by Monte and Mario Caldato, is her first-ever recording to focus entirely on the great Brazilian tradition of Samba. Some of the tracks on the album date back as far as the 1940s, including songs by Jayme Silva, D. Yvonne Lara, Casemiro Vieira, Moraes e Galvao, and Argemiro Patrocinio, alongside new Samba songs written by Monte with Brown and Antunes and other contemporary composers such as Paulinho da Viola. Ex-Talking Heads front man David Byrne also makes a guest appearance on the song 'Statue of Liberty', which he co-wrote with Monte.
