Elis Regina Carvalho Costa, popularly known as Elis Regina, was a Brazilian singer of popular and Jazz music. She became nationally renowned in 1965, after singing “Arrastão” in the first edition of TV Excelsior festival song contest, and soon joined O Fino da Bossa, a television program on TV Record. Elis was noted for her vocalization, as well as for her personal interpretation and performances in shows. She recorded several successful compositions, such as “Como nossos pais”, “Upa Neguinho”, “Madalena”, “Casa no Campo”, “Águas de Março”, “Atrás da porta”, “O bêbado e a equilibrista”, “Conversando no bar”, etc. One of the most popular and artistic Brazilian singers of the ’60s and ’70s, Elis Regina had a lighter, more sensual sound, but still grounded in the tougher, less optimistic rhythms and sounds of her composer/performer class. She’s also a harsher, more assertive singer than the sentimental vocalists like Astrud Gilberto.
