WORLD CD OF THE WEEK.

RITA RIBEIRO Perolas Aos Povos (Putumayo): From the north of Brazil, Rita is a singer but not a song-writer, instead cherry-picking the tunes of others, including Jorge Ben and Chico Cesar.

The opener gives advice to the listener to take 'an aromatic bath' and the gentle sensuality of that tunes sets the pace. A pleasant though unremarkable voice, but a very pleasant listen, partly because of the creative arrangements, varying from accordion-tinged folk to reggae, and partly because she trips through the tunes so lightly and sings with a smile.
