Claudia Villela with Alessandro Penezzi

September 02, 2013

Monday, September 2
8pm $19

Claudia Villela’s haunting improvisations, and her surprising five-octave range, have earned her a consistent following at such venues as the Monterey Jazz Festival, Spoleto Festival, San Francisco Jazz Festival, U.C. Davis, and others clubs, concerts and festival dates across the United States, Japan, and Brazil. Audiences are drawn to the magical dimensions of her singing. Creative and soulfully expressive Villela’s music is heavily rooted in the traditional and contemporary sounds of Brazil’s rich creative cultural heritage. As Helcio Milito, one of the fathers of the bossa nova put it; “Claudia is the biggest expression of Brazilian music in the U.S. Today.”

"The closest the jazz world is likely to ever come to a female Bobby Mc Ferrin, the Brazilian -born genius with a blistering voice." JAZZ TIMES

"... Remarkable, beautiful, towering voice..." NY TIMES
