Bebel Gilberto (from the WC archives)

Bebel Gilberto and The Next Generation Of Bossa Nova - Bebel Gilberto may be the daughter of one of the first Bossa Nova composers, Joao Gilberto, but that is hardly her only distinction. Her 2000 album Tanto Tempo, produced by the electronic artist Suba, was the best-selling Brazilian album ever throughout the 2000s.

We are giving a re-listen to her 2004 World Cafe session for the self-titled follow-up to that record setting disc as part of our Sense of Place: Rio series. The 2004 Bebel Gilberto album moved away from the electronic elements Bebel had embraced for so many years. It is an introspective personal disc and in this interview she discusses the transition, her famous father and the constant movement in her life.
