“Cherries That Went To The Police” listed as a top album of 2011 in Brazil and around

That’s right! CHERRIES THAT WENT TO THE POLICE was listed as “one of the 20 best albums of 2011 that you didn’t hear” by Brazilian journalist Zeca Camargo (host of the popular Globo’s TV show “Fantástico”):

“Cherries that went to the police”, Rita Braga – uma cantora portuguesa… quase com certeza, uma vez que Rita Braga canta na sua (nossa) língua nativa, mas também em inglês, russo, grego… Topei com este álbum sem querer numa recente viagem a Portugal. Não conhecia Rita e achei curioso um disco de uma cantora de lá tão poliglota. “Cherries” é uma surpresa deliciosa a cada faixa: músicas com um “ar de antigamente”, mas com uma vitalidade que não poderia ser mais do “agora”. Sem medo de encarar um repertório nada convencional, Rita foi para mim uma das melhores revelações de 2011.”

In Portugal the album was highly acclaimed in a number of magazines and newspapers and it also made it to the top 20 of Portuguese music magazine Blitz:

Rita’s music also had a sweet mention from Amanda Jo Williams, L.A.’s singer and songwriter who Rita loves, on her top list of 2011:

5. Rita Braga- Any song. This portuguese folk singer, ukulele playing cutie, is great. She had a tour planned for the U.S. recently but unfortunately she was sent back. Boo. I’d love to see her do another bedroom show at Jef’s.

And apart from a “best of 2011”, Aleksandar Zograf, Serbian cartoonist and music journalist who designed the cover wrote a note about the album (see “September updates“):

“CD titled Cherries That Went to the Police, by Rita Braga, from Lisbon, has a cover design by Aleksandar Zograf. Rita Braga tours internationally, and is one of the most interesting independent music performers around. Find more info https://superbraguita.com/ , and there’s a press release in Portuguese :  http://santosdacasa.blogspot.com/2011/08/rita-braga-lanca-disco.html A story of Zograf/Braga collaboration was told in an interview for Portuguese Cotonete TV – http://musica.clix.pt/noticias/cotonete/rita-braga-na-cotonete-tv.html

Thank you Brazil, US, Portugal and Serbia!

  1. Hence, whey protein shakes for losing weight fast in females works
    extremely well. Water should be the single thing in your cooler if you are planning on losing as much mass as you can in as little
    time as possible. Whey, on the other hand, has been clinically
    verified to not only aid in the loss of system excess fat but
    also in the progress and upkeep of lean muscle mass.

    You get only three lives and one continue to start out with, and have
    to find more along the way. Talladega winner David Ragan,
    who won the Coke Zero 400 in 2011, is a Chase long shot.

  4. Before him it was given to me by my revered mother who died at the ripe
    old age of 92 years. In fact in such times the cleansing has to
    be 2 fold or 4 fold. Jehovah said, “Ye shall be holy; for I Jehovah your God am holy.
