Tete Espindola portrait Singer Tete Espindola came from a highly musical family -- several siblings were in a '70s rock-pop band called LuzAzul, later named Lirio Selvagem, which is where Tete started her career. She quickly became a solo star, although over the years she has frequently collaborated with family members, notably with her sister Alzira on the popular album, "Anahi." Here's a quick look at her work...

Tete Espindola "Tete E O Lirio Selvagem" (Phillips, 1978) (LP)
A challenging, sometimes beguiling album featuring the uniquely irritating vocals of Ms. Espindola, who went on to a successful solo career. Of course. I suppose her high-pitched trilling could be compared to Kate Bush, and sometimes the music tilts into a similarly artsy-fartsy, baroque vein, paired with regional Brazilian music, similar to that of Quinteto Violado. I suppose there's stuff here that the folk-freak revivalists could get into, but this is a pretty hard sell for most of us, and not particularly easy on the ears. I really kinda hate her voice, as well as the preciousness of her phrasing. But maybe that's just me. It's a weird record, for sure, and sometimes that makes stuff worth checking out. The backing band, Lirio Selvagem, was a rechristened version of a band called LuzAzul, featuring several of her brothers -- the label had her ditch them for her later records, which had a clearer pop direction.
