Bebel Gilberto | Thalia Hall | International | Chicago Reader
This is a past event.
When: Fri., Nov. 7, 8 p.m. 2014
With the new All in One (Verve), Bebel Gilberto seems to be announcing herself as an international artist, for better or worse, even though her music is still clearly rooted in the sounds of Brazil; though she's lived in Rio, she was born in New York and makes her home there now. It's obvious at this point that she's not interested in settling into a single identity—she brings fizzy buoyancy to the bossa nova classic "Bim Bom" (written by her father, Joao) and taut funkiness to Bob Marley's "Sun Is Shining," and she obviously has a blast covering one of Carmen Miranda's signature tunes, "Chica Chica Boom Chic." —Peter Margasak, 2009
