By:Eduardo Kaplan

Marisa Monte doesn’t want people to get the wrong impression about the six-year hiatus she took after her last studio release. She was quite busy during that time, giving birth to her second child, raising a family, and working on a documentary as well as a live album.

“I don’t know why, but for some people a live record doesn’t count,” Ms. Monte said during a conversation with Speakeasy from her home in Rio de Janeiro.

The Brazilian singer and songwriter is gearing up for the first leg of a world tour to support her latest release, “O Que Você Quer Saber De Verdade” (What You Really Want to Know), a globe-trotting effort that included recording and mixing sessions in Rio de Janeiro, Sao Paulo, Buenos Aires, Los Angeles and New York.
