DonaIvoneLaraNovaThe great samba composer/singer Dona Ivone Lara, just recovered from a fall in which she broke her leg, will release her first DVD, “Canto da Rainha” with a series of performances starting in March. For those who read Portuguese, there is a wonderful interview with her on Bafafá Online. She talks about writing her first samba at age 12, gives her opinions about today’s sambas de enredo, and cites some of her favorite inspirations: Candeia, Cartola, and Paulinho da Viola.
