Brazilian guitarist Badi Assad comes from a thoroughly musical family. Her brothers, Sergio and Odair, are a world-renowned classical guitar duo. But Assad — considered one of the greatest guitarists in Brazil — was inspired by a new addition to the family on her latest album, Between Love and Luck: her baby daughter. Assad wrote 70 songs for her new-born as she was crafting the album, which features her brand of delicious Brazilian guitar pop.

Hear Assad perform a solo acoustic set in the Soundcheck studio.
