Brazilian Singer Marisa Monte Sambas Back Into the Spotlight
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.
