Also that year she recorded a 78 rpm on the Odeon label containing Amendoim torradinho (Henrique Beltrão) and Desejo (Garoto, José Vasconcelos and Luiz Cláudio). She then released another 78 rpm with Menina (Carlos Lyra) and Foi a noite (Tom Jobim and Newton Mendonça), considered to be one of the forerunners of bossa nova....
