“(Villela)…transforms unfamiliar audiences into passionate fans.”- Boston Globe
Claudia Villela’s glorious five-octave vocal instrument is one of the wonders of jazz, lithe and startlingly beautiful in every register. Born and raised in Rio de Janeiro, she is a supremely inventive scat singer with a vivid vocabulary of sounds, expressive pianist, percussionist and an ingenious composer and lyricist. Villela will be joined by New York based Brazilian jazz musician – guitarist Romero Lubambo – renowned for his work with Trio da Paz, a series of stunning duets with vocalist Luciana Souza, as well as having recorded two gorgeous albums with vocalist Leny Andrade, 1994’s Coisa Fina (Perfil Musical) and 2006’s Lua Do Arpoador (Biscoito Fino).
