Editors’ Notes Alcione is one of samba's greatest divas. And that voice! You could hear her woody contralto across the Sambadrome at the height of carnival. She hardly seems to work behind the microphone—she just exudes authority, giving each song a kind of gravity, as if she's a small planet and all the instruments are helplessly revolving around her. Get off the beaten track here; you won't be disappointed.
