Bebel Gilberto, the daughter of Brazilian pioneer Joâo Gilberto and Miucha, has finished her new album which will be titled Momento. Bebel shot to fame with her debut release Tanto Tempo in 2000, after appearing alongside some of the most respected artists of our time, including Caetano Veloso and David Byrne, and cutting edge experimenters like Deee Lite’s Towa Tei and Thievery Corporation.
The release is scheduled for early 2007. For more details and video clips, visit Bebel Giberto.com (the site is appaently offline).
