Grammy nominated songstress Tanya Maria has released critically acclaimed albums and dazzled audiences in every corner of the globe. Her impressive live act showcases the full spectrum of her unique amalgamation of genres; all while remaining distinctly and proudly Brazilian. Since her early days, the fiercely independent singer, composer, pianist, and band leader found unique ways to intersperse her native Brazilian music & rhythms with Latin syncopation and the extemporaneous disposition of American Jazz. Tanya Marias sensual low tones, tenacious stage performances, and percussive piano style have made her one of the true originals of not only Brazilian sound, but of Music the world over.
Born in Brazil and surrounded by music as a child, Tanya Maria was first taught to play piano so that she could participate in her familys weekend jam sessions. As the fiercely independent singer, composer, pianist, and bandleader grew, she found unique ways to intersperse her native Brazilian music and rhythms with Latin syncopation and the extemporaneous disposition of American Jazz.
