Carmen Miranda (1909 - 1955) lives, forever luminous and honey-voiced, in the hearts of her many fans worldwide. In Brazil, the most important recent tributes to the great star are her official website and the announced incorporation of the Carmen Miranda Museum into Rio de Janeiro's new Museum of Image and Sound (MIS), to be opened in the second half of 2012.
The official Carmen Miranda website is a treasure featuring a radio station, film clips, photos, and a collection of song recordings with lyrics. Visit and listen to Carmen singing classics such as Dorival Caymmi's "O Que é Que a Baiana Tem?" (with Dorival Caymmi and Bando da Lua).
