“Maita can set a love song to a martial arts rhythm; evoke harsh realities of ghetto life with gentleness and dry-eyed humanity; and most of all, use her fluid, versatile voice and a rich musical heritage -from samba to jazz and pop – to make it all feel like one coherent whole.” “The New Voice of Brazil.”
