Carnaval 2013 in Salvador da Bahia is winding down, but Daniela Mercury never stops. The clip below shows how watching her perform, either in concert or following one of her electric trios, is a musical gift that keeps on giving. “O Canto da Cidade” sums up the joy and energy of Carnaval, and Daniela turns this feast of Brazilian culture into a delicious sensory experience with her outfits and accompanying dancers. With her dedication to social causes and promotion of her country’s vibrant culture, Daniela Mercury sums up what is tirelessly dynamic about Brazil.
