Everything about Janet Kapuya is multi-dimensional. Her multi-faceted voice. Her multi-layered style. Her plural talents. Janet is a wonderful singer possessing a most spectacular range existing in music! Her given name is Janet Myriam Kapuya. She was born in Uruguay and like all naturally gifted musicians she originally comes from a family of musicians.
Janet was born an entertainer. She started her career when she was really very young. Thus, from the tender age of four Janet was already performing on the Radio of her country, Uruguay, and won the first award in a music contest on Radio Carbe at Montevideo.
When she was eight years old, she started her professional career and was educated in live performance, dancing, singing, acting, and interpretation in first, second, and third voice (trio). She performed live on TV shows for five years and people loved her for being so spontaneous and so responsible despite the young of her age!
When she was thirteen, her family moved to Buenos Aires, Argentina. There Janet had the opportunity to study arts (acting, live performance, singing, dancing, painting, sculpture and the art of making jewelry). During her teens she turned out to be one of the most talented singers in the Tango repertoire and became very well known in Argentina. She played in Tangerias and gave concerts in theaters at Buenos Aires. Janet also sang Folk music inspired from the Andes and Latin America.
She took part at Vinas Del Mar music contest, as a composer. It was not a big surprise that the reviews she received by the critics of the contest were all very good! By that time she was noticed by a group of Greek musicians, thus Janet was invited to Greece where she started a big career singing the music of the famous Greek composer Mikis Theodorakis. The Greek audience loved her for her expressive and warm voice! She became very well known and acquired a big loyal fan club. A contract with the record label C.B.S (now owned by Sony music) followed. Janet has also participated in a concert with Julio Iglesias held on the national Greek Television Channel.
She communicates with her audience in a mysterious way she sings with my all her heart and she feels the vibrations of music firstly in her bones and then she makes the whole theatre treble. She is so full of music and she has a unique talent to give her own identity to every piece of music that she sings.

Entrevista Janet Kapuya, la voz uruguaya que abrio las puertas a la musica latinoamericana...Entrevista
Janet Kapuya, la voz uruguaya
que abrio las puertas a la musica
latinoamericana en Grecia
Por Adriana Martinez -Farsaris
finales de los anos 70 llego a Grecia una joven
uruguayaa cantar en temporada canciones griegas
de compositores conocidos como Mikis Theodorakis. Ellos
descubrieron su talento en Nueva York, la trajeron a Grecia
y nunca mas la dejaron ir de este bello pais. Asi se abrio
una nueva puerta de la musica latinoamericana. Janet
Kapuya no solo trajo nuestra musica sino tambien el arte
y la pasion a los escenarios griegos. En entrevista con Sol
Latino, Janet comparte con nosotros su ser, su corazon, nos
mostro la mujer que se esconde detras de esa grandiosa
voz, una mujer decidida, con fe y buen humor.
"El destino me trajo a este pais y no se equivoco. He conocido
tanto carino de la gente y he podido colaborar con los mejores
cantantes y musicos locales y me siento afortunada. Vine
con la verdad y eso es, creo, lo que ha hecho que la gente
me recuerde y estime". "El momento mas feliz de mi vida
fue cuando nacio mi hija, por ello hice un alto en el camino
como musico y me dedique cien por ciento a ella. Ahora
ella esta preparada y yolista para continuar como cantante
con nuevo cd y show". "Un artista debe controlar cada parte
de su vida, todo lo que hace lo hace con amor, por ello su
vida es como un circulo de vida, es un espiral, se necesita
balance y equilibrio". "El arte es un escape, es descanso, todo
en mi es un arte, pinto, hago joyas, escribo poesia, canto y
puedo vivir sin cantar, todo lo que hago lo hago intensamente,
para mi mi musica es mi amante pero puedo vivir sin el".
"Creo que las mujeres somos seres fuertes, yo he renacido
muchas veces y me siento representante de nuestro genero".
"La musica es lo unico que ha sido capaz de traspasar las
fronteras, por ello canto, por ello expreso en mi nuevo disco
mi vida, la cual he vivido profundamente". "Todas las
canciones expresan algo mio, la cancion que yo escribi es
La culpa la tengo yo, pues aun no he encontrado al hombre
que me comprenda, aun lo estoy esperando". "Profundidad
es el resultado de un trabajo en equipo con Yoel Soto, mi
mejor amigo, director y escritor de las letras de muchas de
las canciones de mi album; mi productora, Kathi Vekri y los
musicos que compartieron este momento conmigo, todos
ellos de una calidad musical y personal inigualable. Todos
ellos me ayudaron a crear un sueno, un retazo de mi que
me identifica completamente".
Dos de sus canciones de estedisco estan siendo yaescuchadas
en el extranjero. Prontamente realizara una gira presentando
su nuevo album en escenarios griegos e internacionales.
Sol Latino le desea buena suerte y mucho exito.
There are no upcoming dates at this time.
