From Austrian Embassy:
You are invited to a jazz concert with Célia Mara. The program is within the framework of European Music Festival 2014.
Célia Mara is typically Brazilian… and Viennese: born and raised in the vale do Jequitinhonha in Brazil, she is now living in Vienna, Austria. At the root of her music lies a fusion of traditional Brazilian music, the rich Latino Culture and European underground instrumental grooves. She created “Bastard Sound” by surfing between musical styles and rhythms, playing effortlessly with Retro-Brazil, Tango and traditional Afro-Brazilian sounds, and mixing Nova MPB and Samba with Funk, Reggae, Balkan-Folk, Glamour Rock and Hip Hop. The lyrics, sung in Portuguese, English, German, Spanish and French, are urban poems that allow communication beyond borders.
She is an engaging front woman, who never fails to impress with her strong voice, her amazing vocal improvisations, her quick switches to beat boxing and – sometimes – trumpet solos. She plays her acoustic guitar with glamour, Brazilian rhythm and a lot of fun.
Together with her band, Célia Mara performed in hyped clubs in London, Moscow or Prague, but also in prestigious concert halls like the famous Vienna Opera House. They participated at huge Reggae-, Jazz-, Groove- or World Music Festivals throughout Europe and at Latin America’s biggest festival, Ollin Kan, in Mexico City. And now – for the first time – they will be bringing „Bastardista“ to Vietnam!
