Denise Reis, the Brazilian woman that received a standing ovation by His Holiness the Dalai Lama, is a full artist concerning promoting the Brazilian music throughout the world. With an incredibly tuned voice, the singer, composer and violinist walks in between the Popular Brazilian Music (MPB) and the Jazz.
Having born in Belo Horizonte, she lived during some years in Rio de Janeiro, where she worked with famous musicians as Milton Nascimento, Wagner Tiso, Paralamas do Sucesso, and others.
The artist has a special vocal trumpet technique, in which she reproduces the sound of a trumpet using her lips and voice. This amazing artistic resource/feature/characteristic allied to her voice and guitar, granted her several invitations to TV interviews at Programa do Jô, Hebe, Amaury Jr.,Adriane Galisteu, and others.
After a long experience in Brazil, Denise released 2 CDs: Chá de Hortelã com Caviar e Alfândega, both extremely well received by the audience and the critics. In 2007 her international career begun, presenting herself in Portuguese, Ukrainian, Senegalese, Venezuelan, Israeli, Canadian and North American important stages.
Recently she had the honour to be invited by a North American organization to compose a song in Portuguese and present it live to His Holiness the Dalai Lama, in an event with more than 7.000 people, at the Palace Theater, in Albany (NY).
Since 2014 Denise also lives in New York, where she has regular presentations at well-known venues. With no labels or limiting definitions, we may say that Denise Reis communicates her music transcending any cultural barrier. Her art is in itself a universal language, in which emotion, technique, perfectionism and sophistication meet each other in harmony.
“One of the most musical people I have ever met” – Jô Soares
“Denise Reis sings with a voice of a true veteran singer. Her interpretation is wonderful, colouring and turning even more beautiful any song.
Her vocal cords are never out of tune and her throat is privileged. I could even say: Her throat is magic” – Tito Madi.
