Daniela Mercury, Full of Grace
You do not need to understand Portuguese to appreciate the innovation, energy and passion that Daniela Mercury infuses into her music. Watch the making of this song and accompanying video, Cheia de Graça (Full of Grace) to understand the gifts Daniela gives to global music. Her tireless advocacy on the behalf of her beloved Bahia, indigenous cultures, social change and the arts of all genres is why this site showcases her work on a regular basis. And in case you forgot about Rio+20, it’s important to remember that Daniela was one of the few bright spots of this past summer’s UN conference in Brazil.
