As the summer heat fades, Salomé de Bahia comes through to keep the tropical fires burning. With production by Yellow boss Bob Sinclar, the singer best known for “Outro Lugar” sways and swaggers through standards like “Mas Que Nada” and a housed-up “Copacabana” with her signature vibrant, full-throated Portuguese propelling percussion- and horn-heavy arrangements. Despite a few schmaltzy missteps (like the overripe “Lança Perfume”), Brasil is an album of Latin and house tracks as big and bold as its namesake.
