Do you remember Sonia Rosa? For the late comers, Sonia Rosa is a nice Brazilian singer that released Sonia Rosa – A Bossa Rosa de Sonia Rosa (1968) and mysteriously left Brazil to live in Japan and never returned.

zecalouro spread his wings and flew to Japan just to get this new Sonia Rosa release, Sonia Rosa – Sensitive Sound of Sonia Rosa (1970) for the Japanese label Express.

Here, Sonia has the great help of Sadao Watanabe Quartet on a another nice record. Tracks include:

Sonia Rosa – A Bossa Rosa de Sonia (1968)

It is time to meet a rare LP from the Brazilian singer Sonia Rosa – tender voice and sweet bossa tunes with her acoustic guitar backed up by Chiquinho Moraes. Everything is gentle on this LP, sometimes jazzy with a bit of SambaJazz accompaniment by Chiquinho.

Sonia Rosa – A Bossa Rosa de Sonia Rosa (1968) was released when she was 18 years old, including six original songs written by Sonia. That’s amazing. There is no much information about Sonia and zecalouro was not old enough in the 60’s to realize if she was appreciated well here in Brazil or not.

Sonia went to Japan when she was 20 years old and did not return to Brazil. Maybe our Japanese friends can talk a little bit more about Sonia Rosa. Tracks includes:

01 – Olhe Meu Bem
02 – Marambaia
03 – Voltar para Ficar
04 – Quem te Viu, Quem te Ve
05 – Parquinho do Meu Bairro
06 – Lata D’Agua
07 – Adeus Guacyra
08 – Mas nao Da
09 – Cheiro de Saudade
10 – E Fim
11 – Caminhemos
12 – Ressalva
