The 27-year-old Mariana Aydar, who grew up in a musical family in São Paolo, represents one of the finest singers of the new generation of Brazilian artists. She gracefully moves from samba rhythms to classic songs, from forróto contemporary sounds. In her repertoire, she features works by new songwriters, her own material, and fresh renditions of Brazilian classics with her own distinctive mark. She has sung with many top singers, including Dominguinhos and João Donato, and toured Europe as the opening act for Seu Jorge after meeting him while living in Paris. In this program, which marks her US debut, she is joined by her five-piece band.
