She’s a Brazilian torch singer, but Marisa Monte is no girl from Ipanema. Her new Rose and Charcoal—named for the flesh tones she’d like to add to the natural-resource-touting green, blue, and yellow of the Brazilian flag—was produced by no-waver Arto Lindsay and features contributions from Philip Glass, Laurie Anderson, and Bernie Worrell; some of it is the expected too-easy listening, but there’s also an elegant version of Lou Reed’s “Pale Blue Eyes” and an insinuating Afro-Brazilian groove to “Segue o Seco.” At 8 p.m. at the Barns of Wolf Trap, 1624 Trap Rd., Vienna. $27.50. (703) 938-2404. (MJ)
