Samba ~ Bossa Nova ~ Carnaval
Born in the charismatic city of S?o Paulo, Brazil, Liza Silva has dedicated herself to performing the traditional music of the Brazilian repertoire and presenting them to American audiences ? Samba, Bossa Nova, Afro-Samba, Forro, Samba-Pagode, Samba-Reggae, Lambada and Carnival styles.
But her experience in North America has also broadened her knowledge of American and European music. By blending these styles of music together with various Latin Rhythms, her performances have grown into providing a wide range of intimate, dynamic, exciting and danceable music for small and large gatherings.
Liza?s band, Voz Do Brasil
, has been received enthusiastically throughout the Bay Area and beyond. Upon experiencing their performing, a fan was quoted saying that ?The night I caught them at the Bahia Cabana Club, they had the place dancing like Carnival itself. If you were not out on the dance floor, your feet were tapping to persuasive percussion and rhythms. The rhythm is the difference that distances Brazilian music from others forms throughout the world.?
