Nara Leão

Nara Leão (January 19, 1942 Vitória, Espírito Santo-June 7, 1989 Rio de Janeiro) also known as Nara Leao, Nara Leãu, Nara Lofego Leão or Nara Loffego Leão was a Brazilian singer and actor. Her children are called Isabel Diegues and Francisco Diegues.

She died caused by brain tumor.

Nara Leão was a prominent figure in the Bossa Nova music movement in Brazil during the 1960s. She began her singing career in 1963 and quickly gained popularity with her distinctive voice and interpretation of songs by composers such as Tom Jobim, Vinicius de Moraes, and João Gilberto. Her first album, "Nara" (1964), was a huge success and cemented her status as one of the leading voices of the Bossa Nova genre.

As her career progressed, Nara Leão became increasingly involved in the political movements of her time, particularly the student protests against Brazil's military dictatorship. She was a close friend of fellow musician and political activist Chico Buarque, and many of her later recordings featured songs that addressed social issues and criticized the government.

In addition to her music career, Nara Leão also appeared in several films, including "Garrincha: Hero of the Jungle" (1963) and "The Guns" (1964). She continued to perform and record music until her death in 1989 at the age of 47. Despite her relatively short career, she left an indelible mark on Brazilian music and remains a beloved figure to this day.
