Sabrina Malheiros is the daughter of Alex Malheiros, bass player in legendary Brazilian jazz/funk trio Azymuth, and she was clearly paying attention while she was growing up.

The intricate, interlaced rhythms now combine with virtuoso musicianship to allow Malheiros’s honey-dripping singing to work as part of the whole, instead of merely riding on top of it…….
