«Remarkable, beautiful, towering voice… » — The New York Times

Claudia Villela sings the music of Elis Regina, Jobim, Nascimento, Guinga, Powel, Lins, Bosco, Gil, Villa Lobos + originals!

Since her move to the Bay Area in 1984, dynamic Rio-born artist Claudia Villela has developed a reputation as a singularly unique singer, pianist and composer, lending her five-octave voice to work with jazz luminaries including Kenny Werner, Michael Brecker and Toots Thielemans. Of her remarkably evocative and beguiling voice, the iconic San Francisco Chronicle critic Phil Elwood enthused, “Villela doesn't just sing – she actually dances with her voice on top of Brazilian beats.”

Having absorbed a diverse range of music from the time of her childhood, Villela blends the ever-present samba of her native Brazil with jazz, blues, and songs from around the globe. She says, “my singing is the sum of all the music I've heard, from Brazilian baroque to bossa nova to free jazz, the nostalgic and modern. It comes from all those memories." She released three scintillating albums before taking a hiatus from performing, and makes a welcome return with a rousing celebration featuring the music of pioneering Brazilian vocalist Elis Regina and iconic Brazilian composer Heitor Villa-Lobos, as well as her own stimulating compositions.
