Winner of three 2012 Video Music Brasil awards, check out Gaby Amarantos’ video for "Xirley"

Gaby Amarantos is a singer of style known as “technobrega”. She hails from the north Brazilian state of  Pará and released her first album earlier this year. Having recently won three 2012 Video Music Brasil awards, the artist brushed off the media’s attempt to compare her to American singer Beyoncé and sees her success as proof that Brazil is beginning to accept and appreciate its own brand of national pop music. This is one of her hit songs entitled “Xirley”.
