Monica da Silva
Brazilian American singer songwriter, Mônica da Silva has just released a new album, “Brasilissima” on Socialite Fiasco Music. “Brasilissima” draws from both the Brazilian and American cultures, and is a throwback to the days of Astrud Gilberto with plenty of modern elements and edge. Putumayo Records is excited to feature Mônica’s first single “Aí Então, on their forthcoming compilation called “Brazilian Beat” due to be released in January 2012. Putumayo has already sold over 27 million of their renowned compilations worldwide, introducing the world to the music of many up and coming artists.
Best known for her multi-lingual music productions that span five languages - English, Portuguese, Spanish, Italian and French, you may have already heard some of Mônica’s music and not even realized it. Many of her songs have been featured on national and international commercials, and prime time shows on MTV, CBS, NBC, HGTV, E!, and The Style Network, just to list a few.
Mônica grew up between the USA and Belém, Brazil, a city on the Amazon River. Experiencing life in two very different places helped to shape Mônica's original sound, which is a blend of Bossa Nova, World Music and Indie Pop.
