Inezita Barroso, 1956.

Inezita Aranha de Lima 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.[1]


She was married to Adolfo Cabral Barroso from 1947 until his death in 2006; the couple had one child.[2]
