About Virginia Rodrigues
Rodrigues may come from Salvador, the most African-influenced region of Brazil, but her incredible vocal style also contains elements of American spirituals and Eastern folk. While her backing tracks are strong on rhythm and groove, her unworldly voice seems to inhabit its own planet far away from the music. Somewhat bizarrely, the tension between the two combine seamlessly and work surprisingly well together. Rodrigues' unique approach has made her a new darling of the Worldbeat scene.
