A singer, songwriter and music producer natural from Sintra, Portugal, with soul and heart hands tight with Traditional Portuguese Music and all "Lusofonias" and "Iberofonias", yet with the mind also linked with contemporary textures and tools from Electronic Music.

Inspired with polyphonic chanting, organic and ethnic soundscapes and with shamanic rhythms and melodies from ancient cultures. Started in 2012 more connected with sound than with words, however since 2020 writing became stronger. The initial major purpose was explore sound to learn the tools and revisit some of the songs from the ancestral Portuguese oral tradition repertoire, lined within this more contemporary line.

In 2010 started a new cycle writing and composing music for her own repertoire. ÓAI d'IR, a non-traditional project based in traditional music. Original repertoire of acoustic songs based on world percussions, and also in melody, using ethnic instruments, including instruments of traditional Portuguese root. A project produced by Miguel Simões and Andreia João in co-authorship.

Invited by the producer and multi-instrumentalist JÚLIO PEREIRA to sing the song “Lagoa das Sereias” in his álbum “Praça do Comércio” from 2017, and in 2015 also invited to sing with the traditional singer ISABEL SILVESTRE, in the album “Cânticos da Terra e da Vida”, both albums released in Portugal by Tradisom.

Since 2009, Andreia is the singer/performer for NOIDZ, a band of aliens arising from the Planet. A fusion between Metal, Trance and Traditional Portuguese Music. Participates in the band's second album “2.0.1.3.”, released in April 2013, with special guests such Fado singer KÁTIA GUERREIRO and again, JÚLIO PEREIRA.
