ABOUT
Brazilian singer Fernanda Cunha features contemporary and traditional compositions.

Fernanda rose out of the rich Brazilian jazz scene to become a rising luminary in international jazz.

She began her career in 1997 and has since toured Brazil, Europe, and North America performing at prestigious international jazz festivals. She has performed at important jazz festivals like Aarhus Jazz festival(Denmark), Wien Jazz festival (Austria), Jazz a Juan(France), Borneo Jazz festival (Malaysia), Vancouver Jazz festival(Canada), among others. Regular appearances at jazz festivals in Canada have helped to carve out a whole new fan base for Cunha’s post-bossa groove, and she repayed the compliment with her CD Brasil-Canada released in 2009.

In 2012 Fernanda celebrated 15 years of career, and she releasing her fifth CD "Coração do Brasil", acompanied by her fellow musicians: : Cristóvao Bastos(piano), Jorjão Carvalho(eletric bass), Ze Carlos(guitar), Jurim Moreira (drums) and special guests; Sueli Costa(piano), Camilla Dias(piano), Marcio Hallack(piano) and Tom Szczesniak (acordeon).
