Was (born 1979) in Rio de Janeiro is a Brazilian MPB singer/songwriter. Her music has been described as "nu bossa", combining house beats with jazz and samba influences and "cool, detached-sounding vocals", and critics have compared her to Brazilian contemporaries Bebel Gilberto and Céu. She was interested in music from a young age, enrolling in music school at age six, and making her first studio recording before age seven. She cites Azymuth and João Gilberto as early influences on her musical style. Malheiros's first commercially distributed recording was the title track of Azymuth's 1991 album Curumim, on which she sang lead vocals. Her debut album, Equilibria, was released in 2005. Malheiros wrote or co-wrote nine tracks on the album. Her second album, New Morning, was released in 2008. Both albums were produced by Daniel Maunick and released on the Far Out Recordings label. She is married to musician Daniel Maunick. A remastered and partially reworked "Deluxe Edition" of New Morning was released in 2009, containing a few extra tracks and an increased emphasis on instrumentation. Malheiros made her United Kingdom concert debut on 18 May 2005 at Jazz Cafe, London. She is the daughter of Azymuth bassist Alex Malheiros.
