World Music Features Rosa Passos
Rosa Passos began performing in the late ’60s, but was overlooked for her straightforward approach to bossa nova, eschewing the rock bombast and glossy production values popular at the time. As someone who adheres to the tradition, she is undaunted by the bossa nova’s rich history.
