Eliane was a precocious jazz pianist as a teenager in São Paulo.
She came to America and played with Steps Ahead, and later married
trumpeter Randy Brecker. She has released many great albums of jazz
music and Brazilian songs. She is an incredible talent and a great beauty!
Bahia's biggest female star, and one of the three Bahian axé music queens of Carnaval celebrations (along with Daniela Mercury and Claudia Leitte), Ivete Sangalo has a strong voice and always puts on a big extravaganza of music and dance. The well-built diva (those breasts! those legs!) is famously temperamental.
