While most of her music is in the style of modern MPB, she has also recorded traditional samba and folk tunes, as well and songs by Marvin Gaye and Lou Reed. Much of her work has been in collaboration with musicians/songwriters Carlinhos Brown, Arnaldo Antunes, and Nando Reis, and producer Arto Lindsay. She has also worked with foreign artists such as Laurie Anderson, David Byrne and Ryuichi Sakamoto.
