Elizabeth Santos Leal de Carvalho (born May 5, 1946 in Rio de Janeiro) is a Brazilian samba singer, guitarist, and composer. She had sung on the radio from the age of seven, but her first LP was 1968's Andança. She had a variety of hits in the 1970s with her 1979 song Coisinha Do Pai being her biggest hit. The song was inserted into the Mars Pathfinder. In the 1980s she started a "samba pagode" movement which used different instruments for samba and had no "pop" arrangements. She also set up samba schools and began doing more socially conscious music.
