Maria, Tania - Canto

Lägg till önskelista + 159 kr - Utgången

Tania Maria was born into a family of amateur musicians in Sao Luis, north-western Brazil, she began studying the piano and the age of seven and was just 13 when she was the hands-down first-prize winner in a regional competition as the leader of a group started by her father. At the time, bossa nova was all the rage from Rio to New York, adding a peppery touch to jazz like an exotic local spice.

Just three years later, however, this talented young woman with a bright future tried to distance herself from music by studying law. Her figners continued to yearn for the piano, however, and she finally gave in to its insistent call, committing herself to music with more fervour than ever. After shuttling between gigs in Rio and Sao Paulo, she recorded her first album at the age of 20, for Warner.

As early as 1969, her first musical performances clearly showed her potential and her predilections: an astounding mix of Brazilian rhythms and jazz harmonies, underpinning a remarkable natural gift for spinning sophisticated melodies. After 36 years and 25 albums, and by way of such runaway hits as Piquant, Come with me and Made in New York, Tania Maria stands out as one of the truly great talents on the Brazilian music scene, where she is known for her unmistakable voice, whose sultry low tones can lay down a serious groove, and for her percussive touch at the piano, where things can suddenly take a more classical turn. She has also done a lot of travelling in her time, from the Paris nightlife of the 70s, where she met Claude Nougaro, to the New York fusion years in the 80s; she has lived in both cities, and both continue to live in her.

She has also taken part in virtually every major jazz festival in the world, from Montreux to New Orleans, Tokyo and Nice. Tania Maria is an accomplished musician who, though always attracted to swing and jazz, has never forgotten the fundamental beats of her native choro and samba.
