Resistance ( Nilza Costa album) Resistance has always been the struggle of the black people, the oppressed people. The human being with power and money has always weighed on the body of the oppressed with humiliation, hunger, misery, lack of opportunities. The first song on my album is called Resistance. Resistance is a cry for freedom against all oppression, cowardice, injustice, lack of peace, hope and love. May the human being be more attentive to the other and that we can all have the dignity we deserve as human beings that we are and not just because of the color of our skin. more
Nilza Costa Quartet Nilza Costa Quartet is a band composed of Brazilian singer-songwriter Nilza Costa, Red Rossi, drummer / percussion and vocals, Daniele Santimone, electric guitar and seven strings and vocals and Maurizio Piancastelli, trumpet / effects / keyboards and vocals. His music is sacred, history and contemporary language where the soul is improvisation.

They live in Italy with several tours in a European country. The latest album is called The Nights of San Patricio published by the Bruttura Moderne label (Italy) and distributed by Xango Music (Paese Bass) and Tratore (Brazil). We live in Italy. The artist has been in the top 50 on the world album chart since her album was released in September 202.

In October 2021 we went to Germany, Luxembourg, Holland and Belgium for a six-date tour but in the past few years we have also done several tours. Music cannot stop, it must go everywhere carrying the message of peace, equality, social, political and human. Music is the only language of union and resistance. more

ABOUT
Nilza Costa é uma cantora e compositora brasileira de Salvador (Bahia), cidade situada às margens do Oceano Atlântico e fortemente influenciada pelas tradições “Afro”. A paixão pela música é transmitida a ela por sua origem afro-indígena que a acompanhava nos serviços religiosos do candomblé, permitindo que ela se aproxime da cultura iorubá. Em Salvador da Bahia vem a se apresentar como voz solo no chorus da Igreja de São Lazzaro e no chorus cênico do Olodum .
Desde 2006 ela reside na Itália. Sempre apoiado pela contribuição de instrumentistas excepcionais da cena jazzística italiana, sua história artística tem sido enriquecida pelos inúmeros shows ao vivo por toda a Europa e por colaborações ilustres.
Uma peculiaridade de Nilza Costa é combinar os ritmos ancestrais da África com algumas formas populares da cultura e da religião brasileira como Candomblé, Capoeira, Samba Duro, Maculel ê e Cantigas de Roda.
Seu trabalho artístico é a viagem por um itinerário mágico suspenso entre culturas e línguas como ou iorubá, antiga língua introduzida nas Américas pelos escravos africanos.
A forma atual de sua banda é composta por Roberto “Red” Rossi (bateria, percussão e voz), Daniele Santimone (violão de sete cordas) e Maurizio Piancastelli (tromba, effects e tastiere)
