The daughter of bossa nova legend Joao Gilberto made a splash by adding electronica to classic Brazilian sounds on her debut, though a more traditional sequel went relatively unnoticed. This mesmerizing comeback looks both ways, from a breathtaking version of Cole Porter’s “Night and Day” that echoes her father’s “The Girl From Ipanema” to the murmuring dance grooves of “Bring Back the Love,” costarring New York City’s Brazilian Girls. Even Gilberto’s gentlest songs possess the steady intensity of a heartbeat, while her caressing voice has a dreamlike allure guaranteed to induce goose bumps. A head trip for all occasions, Momento can inspire religious visions-or sleazy fantasies.

DEMOCRACY DOES NOT EXIST...

without free and fair elections, a vigorous free press, and engaged citizens to reclaim power from those who abuse it.

In this election year unlike any other—against a backdrop of a pandemic, an economic crisis, racial reckoning, and so much daily crazy—Mother Jones' journalism is driven by one simple question: Will America will move closer to, or further from, justice and equity in the years to come?
