Long awaited new music from Bebel
Brazilian chanteuse Bebel Gilberto has announced the release of her first new studio album in five years. Tudo will be released August 19th on Portrait/Sony Music Masterworks. Bebel's 12-track collection will cool off a hot summer with her trademark blend of Brazilian rhythms and ethereal vocals. So far there doesn't seem to be a lead single although Bebel has been performing "Saudade Vem Correndo" and the title track on interview programs.

Sidiki has been touring with his Grammy Award-winning father and the kora masters will be playing dates in the US in the fall. You can catch a sample of their music in the track "Dr Cheikh Modibo Diarra" now trending on NewWorldBuzz.
