Marisa Monte in concert

  • June 26, 2013 · 8:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Marisa Monte was born in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Her father, Carlos Monte, was one of the directors of the Portela Samba school, and she begin her musical studies on piano, drums and music theory at a very early age. Despite growing up during the height of the Musica Popular Brasileira movement—MPB was the post-bossa nova popular music of Brazil—Monte’s first interest was in classical music and opera, and inspired by her idol Maria Callas she traveled to Italy at age 18 to study classical singing.

It was while abroad that Monte first fully recognized the musical richness of her homeland, and decided to return to Brazil and join the ranks of the MPB, following in the footsteps of her greatest influences, including Elis Regina, Gal Costa, Jorge Ben, Caetano Veloso, Nara Leão and Maria Bethânia, and establishing herself as a star in her own right.

In 2006, Monte simultaneously released Universo Ao Meu Redor, a collection of samba songs both old and new, and Infinito Particular, a contemporary pop record on which she returned to unrecorded songs from over the course of her 15 years of songwriting. Jon Pareles of The New York Times named Infinito Particular one of his Top 10 albums of the year, writing that “Monte released two lovely albums this year. Infinito Particular is the more introspective one, a set of gravity-defying ballads. Her voice floats amid ghostly electronics and a handful of winds and strings, contemplating love and transformation.”

The “Infinito Ao Meu Redor” worldwide tour behind the albums’ release hit 140 shows throughout 50 cities in 15 countries across 4 continents. Monte has sold 9 million albums and won 3 Latin Grammy Awards. She was named the most important living Brazilian singer by Rolling Stone Brazil.
Marisa Monte is unique as a Brazilian artist in that she owns the rights to all of her songs; it was her chief demand for renewing her contract with EMI Music.

Make sure to buy your ticket in advance!

We will meet at 7pm at the Amsterdam Ale House, then go to the show.

    I'm glad I met you guys! It made my 1 day trip from Chicago all the better.

    I have one extra ticket for tomorrow, if anyone here is interested. I found you guys while trying to see if there were any sorts of meet & greets with Marisa.
    I was only asking face value of $65, dropping the service charge, in the hopes of it not going to waste. ORCH 1, Row V
    If anyone is interested, let me know. I am flying into town tomorrow.
    Thanks! :)

    Oi galera! Is everyone still meeting at the Amsterdam Ale House beforehand? The email I got from the theater says to arrive early and that there is no opening act, so I'm nervous that there won't be enough time to go to the bar first.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
