Margareth Menezes is a true original of contemporary Bahian music. She teamed up with David Byrne and in 1988 and recorded her first album, Elegibô, which was an international success. The creator of a style she calls "afropopbrasiliero," a style informed by Sambareggae, MPB, and Samba, Margareth Menezes is a composer, singer and band leader of cultural importance. Her bloco, Os Mascarados, meaning “the masqueraders,” is a free-of-charge opening night Carnival tradition (but one must dress in costume to join). Among her many accolades, Margareth won best Carnival song in 2003 with Dandalunda, a song written by Carlinhos Brown.
