As forró matured, the rules for the genre became more strict. Jackson do Pandeiro and Genival Lacerda would break rules, but most groups, especially in the 70s, were fairly strict about instrumentation and song form. Marinês' material was more varied. She recorded a lot of material written by people outside of the family of forró writers. Antônio Carlos e Jocáfi were an accomplished singer / songwriter team, well known for a variety of border-busting MPB hits, including “Você Abusou,” famously recorded as “Fais comme l'oiseau” by Michel Fugain Et Big Bazar. Sem Vergonheira, also written by Carlos e Jocáfi, is not as well known outside of Brazil. It was first recorded by Os Incríveis in 1971. Their interpretation reminds me of soft pop like Harpers Bizarre with fluffy Sergio Mendes grooves. Marinês' version is cooking with gas.
