Mapa das nuvens (1993)

"Brazilian singer songwriter Maria Rita has been building a solid and mature career bathed by the search for beauty, like a curious child. Or would it be at random that she delved in Mario Quintana’s work to write music for some of his verses? The poet, a fellow countryman, shares with her the lack of fear. Maria Rita’s music opens our ears to personal renditions, to ancient remembrances, and intense rediscoveries. It is made to be listened slowly and amorously, delicate and kindly, sipping it slowly but, at the same time urgently. She brings with her a talented team of musicians to build the Map of Clouds."

Mauro Dias, music critic

Brasileira - 1988

Brasileira (1988)

"The recording of 13 compositions, mostly written by the performer herself, makes clear the fact that we are before one of the most expressive and talented singer songwriters that have emerged in this decade. Maria Rita Stumpf also wrote the music for two poems by her fellow countryman Mário Quintana. She also had the collaboration of renowned arrangers and instrumentalists such as bossa nova master pianist Luiz Eça, Marco Antonio Guimarães of the Uaktí group and the gifted gaucho Ricardo Bordini. Maria Rita’s album is unique and daring. It will be difficult someone to get off her hands the palm of originality, and of a singer songwriter of the highest level."
