Compass T he A r t s BRAZILIAN POP Clara Valente adds funk fused with flair and femininity to her already sexy Brazilian sound for your listening pleasure. TEXT BY ESTRELLITA S. SIBILA When you’re in the mood for a rhythmic and refreshing sound, tune in to Brazilian Singer/Songwriter Clara Valente. Her modern Brazilian pop blends bossa nova, samba and jazz with world beats and rhythms. After studying sounds from around the globe, she developed a musical style that spoke more directly to her generation by experimenting with pop and electronic elements in her arrangements. Her lyrics are infused with her passion for women and their femininity. “One thing that I really stand for is the modern woman — a woman who is feminine, delicate and strong,” she says. “There’s nothing like the special connection I share with my audience when I’m on stage.”; ClaraValente.com.br. 32
