Zabelê

Zabelê is the daughter from two of the biggest names of our Brazilian Popular Music scene: the couple Baby do Brasil and Pepeu Gomes, the main artists from the libertarian and revolutionary group Novos Baianos, from the 1970s, and one of the most impressive of our music.

Brazillian singer Zabelê releases her first album, self-entitled. In this new album she detaches herself from the influence of previous works to explore a new Zabelê: everything changed, from the timbre to the voice, causing her to discover a new particular sonority, alongside her natural influences. 

“The first time I listened to Zabele's CD I was concentrated, tuned to her voice, to the songs, lyrics, arrangements, the band...The second time (I listened again right afterwards) I got into the party from head to toe.  What a good thing to listen to and to like, effortlessly. Zabelê has a delicious timbre and sway.” -Marcos Valle
