Rosinha de Valença - Acalanto (1966)

Rosinha de Valença was a Brazilian artist who was especially prominent in the 60s. She toured with Sergio Mendes and Brasil 65 for eight months in America, recording two albums with them along the way. She spent the next couple of years touring Europe, Africa and the Middle East, eventually returning to Brazil, where she alternated between recording and touring until brain damage due to a heart attack forced her to abandon her musical career in 1992.
