Bernadete Dinorah de Carvalho Cidade (b1952) is a Brazilian performer who spans genres- rock influenced (she was a member of the rock band Os Novos Baianos) her work can also be categorized as samba and MPB.
Her music is suffused with energy, and the title of this album Go Crazy, is quite apt.
As a choro singer Baby was influenced greatly by ‘Rainha do choro'(The Queen of Choro)- Ademilde Fonseca. Ademilde puts in a guest appearance on tracks 3 & 4. Baby’s eclecticism is demonstrated by her interpretation of Bob Marley’s Is This Love(É Amor track 7).
Later in her career Baby adopted the name Baby do Brasil.
