Brazilian samba, choro, bossanova, and jazz.
I sing and write both in English and Portuguese.
I like to do pagode style (smaller and casual) of samba and I have a lot of repertoires from Brazilian classics.
I also perform as a lead vocalist for 6 piece samba band, which can provide big sound if necessary.
I change which musicians/instruments to have on my gigs depends on the venue and atmosphere.
My voice is classical trained, very warm and relaxed with good energy. And fun time throughout a show.
Brazilian Jazz played for a family party/wedding reception and they made the party unforgettable. Everyone loved the music-- even those who weren't familiar with samba or bossa nova! Guests were even trying to book the band for their own events. Chieko, Anthony, and Dan were delightful to work with-- they accommodated all my song requests, and were flexible with timing. I couldn't recommend them more highly.
Response from Brazilian Jazz:
Thank you for the great review Rebecca! It was our pleasure working for you! We were so happy to see people dancing! Wishing you and your family all the best of love and happiness!!! :D
What to Expect
You can expect both nice and relaxed bossanova duo/trio, or more fun and energetic bigger samba sound.
I have done small cafe gigs to big music festival type of show.
I studied performing arts at Ballet Arts in New York City for 4 years, and I have been performing since 2006.
The venues include Rockwood Music Hall, The Bitter End, Slipper Room, St. Albans Jazz Festival...to name a few.
I learned piano as a child and now I play guitar as well.
I recorded my first album "Aquarelle" in 2015, and the 6 piece samba band called Os Clavelitos I work as a lead vocalist also released our first album "Arriving", which peak at #1 on RMR World Chart, and #17 at the CMJ Top 40 New World Chart, is currently on 2017 Grammy Ballot in Latin category.
I still keep writing my original songs to prepare for more upcoming projects, and as well as more gigs to come.
Additional Booking Notes
I ask for the cancelation fee if you cancel in a last minute after we agreed to the deal. (Same as venues ask for musicians to do the same in general for responsibility.)
