Rosa Passos

Rosa Passos

Rosa Passos (born April 13 1952) is a Brazilian singer and guitarist born in Bahia State, Brazil.Passos began playing piano at age thirteen, but after listening to Dorival Caymmi and João Gilberto she abandoned the instrument to become a singer. In the late 1960s, Passos began appearing on television and at music festivals. In 1972 she submitted the song "Mutilados" under a pseudonym to the Globo Network's Festival Universitario and won the competition's first prize. However, she did not record her debut until 1978, working with poet Fernando de Oliveira in Brasilia; the album was released in 1979. A follow-up effort, Amorosa followed nine years later, in 1988. In the 1990s she has recorded several albums of songs by her major influences. She toured Europe in 1999 with Paquito D'Rivera and on her own in Europe and Japan in 2000. In 2004, Amorosa was re-released, and attracted notice in the United States, reaching #7 on the Billboard Top World Music Albums chart.
