Top10 MTV Unplugged Latino Duets

6. Rita Lee featuring Milton Nascimento – Mania De Você

Rita Lee’s Mania de Você is a really awesome song thanks to the chilling sound and Lee’s glorious vocal range, which might be one of the greatest in South America (and the rest of the world). But the acoustic version of the song with Milton Nascimento — a big name among Brazilian musicians — singing along with Rita is simply magical. The final minute of this performance with Rita’s hand over Milton’s arm and their cute peck is priceless and well deserving of their crowd reaction. – Rodrigo

5. Gal Costa featuring Zeca Baleiro – Vapor Barato

Brazilian singer Gal Costa has one of those voices — them Brazilians seem to have THOSE voices that move the core of your soul. Costa has this and shows it when we reach the chorus of Vapor Barato (Cheap Steam) with those raw “Minha Honey Baby, Baby, Honey Baby…” Then Zeca Baleiro shows up with his equally stunning voice…

Magic happens. – Amy
