Socialite Fiasco Music is pleased to announce the release of “Soldado de Amor” (Soldier of Love) by Brazilian American singer songwriter Monica da Silva.

In it, Monica's sweet, languid vocals dance around thick Brazilian rhythms.  The track was inspired by the vintage “marchinhas” (marches) and popular samba songs of Brazilian Carnival, and features the haunting vocals that da Silva is known for.

Soldado de Amor was released on March 31st, 2017. The song is now being featured on the BBC Drama “THE REPLACEMENT”, and will soon be included on da Silva’s new album, a follow up to her debut album “Brasilissima”.

Da Silva’s music has been featured on The World Cup, TED, Ibiza Beats, and Putumayo World Music’s “Brazilian Beat”. She also writes and releases music with guitarist and producer Chad Alger, as the Indie duo Complicated Animals.
