Internationally acclaimed singer/songwriter Bebel Gilberto is the daughter of Joao Gilberto, the iconic voice of bossa nova. Gilberto's famed father would always color her musical path, and with the addition of elements of electronic music, she took the legacy of bossa nova from Bahia to the dance floor, earning worldwide success. With the release of Tanto Tempo in 2000, Gilberto formulated her trademark electronic bossa nova, which took over clubs around the world and positioned Bebel as one of the top-selling Brazilian artists in the U.S. Her subsequent albums, which garnered several GRAMMY® nominations, including Bebel Gilberto, Momento and All in One refined her sound to also include an acoustic lounge style that showcased her strengths as a composer.
