The natural born carioca is renowned for her trademark little red dress, twirling hoops and sensuous guitar work, followed by the US premiere of a wildly popular Brazilian comedy.

If I were you 2 (Se eu fosse você 2) takes place after a first experience of exchanging bodies. Cláudio (Tony Ramos) and Helena (Gloria Pires) decide to divorce and, to make things worse, they find out that Bia (Isabelle Drummond), now a 18 year-old, is about to get married – and that they will be grandparents. In the middle of the crisis, they exchange bodies once again.

A natural born carioca, Silvia Machete is a talent of international proportions. Several years ago, Machete left behind her home city of Rio for Manhattan, where she currently lives, works, and plays. Performing frequently throughout the city at clubs of all different sizes, she is known for her trademark little red dress, twirling hoops, and strumming sensuous guitar work. Throughout her career, Michete has also traveled to more than thirty countries, winning numerous awards, and leaving crates of devoured bananas in her wake (her trademark).
