Bebel Gilberto: Momento

Bebel Gilberto is the daughter of João Gilberto and singer Miúcha. Her uncle is singer/composer Chico Buarque. Bebel has been performing since her youth in Rio de Janeiro. She got very successful with her previous albums and remix albums, been nominated for two Latin Grammy awards and so on. So the expectations are were high about the new album. Shortly before her 2007 tour, and ten days before the release of her album "Monento", she broke her foot, preventing from walking and making it difficult to rehearse with the band prior to the tour. In an article, Bebel said that she used Skype to rehearse with the band during her recuperation. Smart :)
