Made in Brazil focuses on three different eras of Brazilian music beginning with two compositions from the 1930s written by Ary Barroso (a composer first popularized by Carmen Miranda), moving to Bossa Nova with music written by Antonio Carlos Jobim and Roberto Menescal in the ‘60s and ‘70s , then traveling through the evolution of Brazilian pop music and the modern music of today, represented by six of Eliane’s compositions.
Made in Brazil also features Take 6, guitarist/vocalist Roberto Menescal and vocalists Mark Kibble and Ed Motta, with seven orchestral arrangements by Rob Mathes recorded at Abbey Road Studios.
