Ivete Sangalo.

Hey, guys! Are you ok? Today in our Dica we will talk about the singer Ivete Sangalo. One of the most successful Brazilian artists.

Brazilian Singer Ivete

Ivete Maria Dias de Sangalo Cady was born on May 27th 1972  she is a Brazilian singer, songwriter, and occasional television show host. She is one of the most popular female Brazilian singers, she’s released six albums with Banda Eva and seven more albums with her solo career. Sangalo is loved for her powerful voice, charisma and live performances.

She started her career with Banda EVA in 1993 singing Axé Music (a type of music which is really popular in Bahia) and had some big hits with many different songs such as Beleza rara and Levada louca. She released six albums as a member of this band. Although Ivete is considered as a carnival singer, she was recognized for her individual talents for her unique voice and some special ways of approaching MPB (Música Popular Brasileira). Let’s see a video of Ivete Sangalo with Banda EVA:

Ivete Sangalo Solo Career

After gaining recognition with her talent, in 1999 was time for Ivete Sangalo to try a solo career and history says that it was the best choice that she could make. Her first self titled album was a huge success and sold over 100.000 copies in Brazil and received the golden record award that year. This album included some hits that are still popular in her career such as Canibal and Se eu não te amasse tanto assim.

In the following years her career just became bigger and bigger. Album after album she was becoming more popular in Brazil and also she attained international success. Songs such as A festa and Poeira helped to launch her around the world with nominations for the Latin Grammy in 2012, in partnership with Bono from U2 and a live DVD recorded at Madison Square Garden in 2010. Let’s see a video of this concert:

Nowadays besides continuing with her solo career, Ivete also is a TV show host, appears in ads,  is a businesswoman and also takes care of her family, she is married and a mom of three kids.

I’ve just started online classes with Prof. Ana Carolina & she is the absolute best! It’s my first time learning Portuguese and I was speaking full sentences in the first class. Obrigada!

Small classes, diverse accents, and engaging professors make Rio & Learn Online a fantastic choice! I've been thrilled with my experience at Rio & Learn Online so far. The small class sizes (around 1-3 others students) allow for personalized attention and plenty of opportunities to practice speaking. What's more, having different professors throughout the program exposes you to various accents, preparing you for real-world interactions. I opted for the full-time program, which involves 2 hours of daily learning from Monday to Friday. After just over 12 weeks, I can confidently say my Portuguese has improved dramatically. The professors are incredibly engaging and encourage students to utilize real-life examples, solidifying the learning process. While I'm only halfway through the program, I'm confident in recommending Rio & Learn Online to anyone seeking to learn Portuguese in a supportive and effective environment. I've gone from being a complete beginner (only knowing hi and bye) to holding conversations - and I'm excited to see how much further I can progress! I'll be back with another review after completing the program, but for now: Rio & Learn Online - highly recommended!

Rio & Learn e um novo jeito de ensinar a lingua portuguesa. Puro prazer e muito eficiente. Quanto mais alunos na aula mais vida. Eu aconselho voces escolher as aulas grupais por porque sao interativas: rir, falar, argumentar, compartir uma lingua!

Après 3 semaines que je suis dans cette école et je peux déjà parler portugais. Certe avec des erreurs mais j'ai fait des progrès fulgurant. En plus, du Lundi au Vendredi l'ecole propose des activitées qu'il appelle "Rio Live" ce qui permet de visiter en même temps Rio tout en parlant Portugais et de rencontrer des gens😃 Toute l'équipe est genial et est prêts à aider si besoin 😁
I've been taking the group online courses with Rio&Learn for 2 months. They offer a fantastic way to learn Portuguese and get speaking practice if you don't live in Brazil. The teachers are engaging and are able to adjust their level of Portuguese to whatever level you are at. Obrigado!

C'est vraiment fantastique...RioAndLearn. Les cours de portugais...ça vaut vraiment la peine. Les cours ont lieu du lundi au vendredi, (de 9h à 13h) et en après midi, ce sont des activités libres en groupe. (Soccer de plage, volleyball , excursions, visites des lieux touristiques, etc) Vendredi soir, on est allé à Lapa, un quartier nocturne de Rio. C'est quelque chose à voir! Des rues bondées de monde, des orchestres, des discothèques...Allô les décibels! L'apprentissage du portugais se fait en immersion, aussi bien en salle de classe que dans les activités extérieures organisées par Rio&Learn. On est plongé dans la langue portugaise et la culture Brésilienne.... Obligé de parler portugais....🫡 Je le recommande. Pierre Pedro, Montréal, Canada
