Ignez Magdalena Aranha de Lima (born March 4, 1925, in São Paulo) is a Brazilian folk singer. She is noted for supporting and reviving songs from the caipira. Since 1980 she has been the host of Viola, Minha Viola on TV Cultura, a Brazilian television network. She has also done some acting.[1]

Barroso became interested in music at an early age. By the 1950s she had had a few mainstream hits, but had a fondness for traditional folk and rural music, even though she herself has been a lifelong urbanite.
