FABIANA COZZA SINGER
Fabiana Cozza has one of the most stunning voices to emerge from Brazil in recent years, and is considered by her countrymen to be one of the nation's leading interpreters of Afro-Brazilian music. Her repertoire reflects knowledge of the many cultures of Brazil, as well as love for the many ways music was born from the African diaspora. Many of her songs are written by young Brazilian composers who share her interest in the relationship of Brazilian music to other cultures of the New World. Her instinct for good writing, brought to life with her extraordinary voice, results in music that is sensuous, evocative, and powerful. Her newest album, Partir, seeks out the African diaspora as expressed in Bahia with its roots in Cape Verde, Congo, and Angola.
