She is a Carioca.

 It's friday, it's been a rough week, let's go for something light.

Some Bossa Nova, shall we?

Listen here, song by Tom Jobim, English version by Celso Fonseca.
Ela é carioca, she's a carioca
Just see the way she walks
Nobody else can be what she is to me
I look and what do I see
When I look deep in her eyes

I can see the sea
A forgoten road
The caressing skies
Incidental: "Celso Fonseca's solo career is better late than never". [The Boston Globe]

"'I come from a very sunny place in the tropics, so even if it sounds sad, it's still joyful music,' he says."
