The magic of Maria Rita to this point has grown out of her close relationships with her band, producer, and the songwriters who helped make "Segundo" a true modern classic. On this DVD, half of the band is missing (only S. Mazzucca remains on bass), and the larger band makes for a more varied sound, but a sound that, while staying true to samba roots, draws focus away from MR's vocals and vibe. As a result, Maria works harder on belting 'em out, on dancing, on captivating the room. Which she sure DOES--vavoom, get a load of that dress at the end!!--but at a cost of coming across as Just Another Brazilian Diva...
And also -- THE EDITING SUCKS on this DVD!!! It would've been nice to linger on the beauty of Maria, but sorry: the editor must have OCD because no clip lasts longer then 2 seconds; plus, what's with all the cuts to parts of Maria's body? It felt like she was being disembodied, fetishized by the edotir, rather than celebrated as a solid-gold singing star. Ugh....but boy, she looks hot in that dress!!
Please Maria, get back with Tiago/Cuca/Sylvinho/Lenine and keep building on the amazing achievement of "Segundo"! Get back to the intimacy and soul that makes you and your magic voice so compelling.
From gentle 'samba-canção' to thundering 'samba-school' batucadas to jazzy MPB, she puts on a singing-dancing virtuoso display of these great Brazilian musical forms, punctuated throughout by the unique sound of the 'cuica'.Read more ›
