Daniela Mercury becomes rockers' godmother

Axé music is gradually losing its power, even inside its own territory: Bahia. The new summer sensation is a pop-rock band called Superfly, comprised of upper middle-class youngster from the town of Salvador who have been packing clubs and venues. The band's manager is an old axé friend: Daniela Mercury, who did whatever she could to get Superfly a deal at Abril Music.
