Marisa Monte

Is the London winter getting you down? Are you craving some sunshine, albeit musical rather than meteorological? Well, here comes Monte, a Brazilian pop superstar blowing into Hammersmith like a warm tropical breeze. Since her debut in 1989, she's sold over ten million albums with her winning combination of samba with jazz, blues and funk, and performed at the Olympics Closing Ceremony last year to mark us handing the Olympic flag to Brazil. This one should be a mood-lifter, even for those who don't speak Portuguese.
