First time I've listen Zélia was in duo with Dinho Ouro Preto (Capital Inicial). It was a good "entrée" to her strong and smooth voice. She sings from her to ours heart. On E-Collection she keeps her strong self-expression that again touch us. Her interpretation on "O Tempo Não Para" (Cazuza & Arnaldo Brandão) bring Cazuza back to earth! Bravo Zélia! Gonna keep tracking your work! --an Amazon.com reviewer

Intimidade
(1997)

If you listened to all the tropicalismo-MPB stuff years ago and wonder why the U.S. is only now stumbling upon Caetano Veloso (how old is he now, 60?) and OS Mutantes (duh! maybe it would've been nice to hear about the band while it still existed?), Zelia Duncan and Adriana Calcanhoto are two interesting new Brazilian singers who write their own stuff. Duncan's singing voice is maybe even lower than Simone's or Maria Bethania's -- if you know these singers, you know that's sub-alto somewhere -- which will add interest value when your friends ask "who's that guy singing" and you hand them her CD. Regardless, her songs are tight and rock-oriented (no sambas, none of the interminable Buarque/Veloso/Djavan covers that even late-1990s Brazilian singers can't seem to stay away from). It'll be interesting to see how her career progresses.
