Dalila – Sensacao! (1964)

Polydor  LPNG – 4086

About the existence of any career album by the fantastic and good looking samba singer Dalila I had no idea until a short time ago when I opened my mail and found the server link for her first album, sent to us by Edson Mendes.

Edson has also written a short text about her life and career:

“Brazilian singer DALILA da Silva Costa was born in 1945 in São Gabriel, Rio Grande do Sul (RS) and raised in Porto Alegre (RS), where she began her artistic career singing at Rádio Charrua. Later, she also appeared in Rádio-TV Gaúcha.
In 1963, he moved to Rio de Janeiro, where she participated and won a contest for newcomers in the program «Um Cantor Por Um Milhão» and the prize was the recording of this disc in 1964 The next year she recorded her second LP “Dalila muito mais” (also for Polydor).
She made seasons at Fred’s and Top Club nightclubs and her career was developed in radios, televisions and clubs.She sang for the royal courts and the presidents of Santiago, Basra, London and Stockholm. Dalila performed and toured throughout South America with leading contemporary artists and musicians and also made a number of famous TV shows along with football legend Pele in Buenos Aires. She signed a contract with the famous show-dance group Brasil Tropical in the early 1970s. The group of approximately 40 members toured worldwide with Europe as a base. She lived in Rome and Barcelona.
DALILA was a resident in Sweden since 1984 and died of a heart attack in 2004.”
