Dutch born, Brazilian based vocalist Martie Rikhof recently released her debut CD “Quem Te Viu”. The CD recently appeared on my desk and being a self proclaimed musical snob when it comes to Brazilian music my first thought was – Well here we go, another CD packed full of westernized bossa nova’s. This preconception could not have been further from the truth and while you can hear some European influences the language of this CD is without doubt Brazilian.

I felt I need to know more: How does a girl from Tilburg in the Netherlands end up in Brazil? How did the collaboration with Claudio Dauelsberg come about? How does she experience the differences in culture?. Recently I had the opportunity to catch up with Martie and Claudio to pose these questions and more.
