The Observer

In a world where everyone wants to be performer, it’s difficult to make yourself heard, especially when your strong points are taste, originality and understated eloquence. Georgia Mancio’s second album, self-produced like the first, displays those qualities in abundance and should put her well and truly on the map.

Her nimble voice is nicely matched by the light-textured accompaniment featuring Gareth Lockrane’s flute and percussion by Anselmo Netto. The dozen songs in this set range from Antonio Carlos Jobim to Lionel Bart to David Bowie, and are sung in English, Portuguese, Spanish and Italian.
