Paris-based Brazilian chanteuse Salomé de Bahia found the worldwide dancefloor via Bob Sinclair, the hip French producer and head from the cosmopolitan Yellowish Productions label. It had been the middle-’90s when Sinclair went to a revue hosted by bandleader Edvaldo Carneiro in the fashionable Parisian golf club Café Felix. From the 40 Bahia-based Brazilian performers, Sinclair was most entranced using the effervescent Salomé de Bahia and believed she was ideal for the Brazilian-influenced group he was developing, the Reminiscence Quartet. She was presented within the group’s Psycodelico recording and its associated tour of European countries. In 2001 she was presented on the golf club strike “Tourment d’Amour” from Sinclair’s recording Africanism. Her 1st solo recording, Cabaret, found its way to 2003. The album’s spicy mix of bossa nova, samba, salsa, and golf club paths with disco attitude endeared her to Gilles Peterson along with other tastemakers as the solitary “Outro Lugar” — her Portuguese-language cover edition of Stevie Wonder’s “Another Celebrity” — dominated the night clubs. Two years later on, de Bahia dusted off her feathered headdress and came back using the full-length Brasil. The recording was her American debut thanks to the Tommy Boy label.
