BRAZILIAN SINGER-SONGWRITER GIANA VISCARDI RELEASES "ORUM"

Giana Viscardi's third album "ORUM" is an artistic collaboration with the three times Grammy winner Al Siqueira (producer of Marisa Monte, Carlinhos Brown and Omara Portuondo, among others) and Bahia's flutist and arranger Letieres Leite (artistic director of the innovative  big band Orkestra Rumpilezz). 

It brings together African-Brazilian rhythms that were left in a state of purity.  These ancient rhythms, present throughout Giana's music, blend harmoniously with Giana's unique jazz touch, and lead contemporary Brazilian Music into a brand new direction.

Giana Viscardi started singing at a very young age and she chose the best music schools to master her favorite genres: Bossa Nova at Zimbo Trios School, Samba at So Paulo's Groove School, and Jazz at Boston's Berklee College of Music.

Over nearly 20 years of career as an independent singer songwriter, she has recorded three albums: " Tinge " (USA, 2001), " 4321 " (Brazil, 2005) and "Orum" (Brazil, 2013), which was immediately indicated to Prmio da Msica Brasileira, the most prestigious music prize in Brazil. Twenty recordings of her songs were also made by Brazilian singers of her generation such as Mariana Aydar, Izzy Gordon, Dani Gurgel, Manu Santos and Vernica Ferriani (Gafieira So Paulo).

Joo Donato, Roberto Menescal, Jerry Bergonzi, George Garzone, Bill Pierce, Rosa Passos, Elba Ramalho, Chico Csar, Trio Corrente, among others, are artists that Viscardi has already performed with in Brazil and abroad: in Japan, Latin America and Europe on stages such as Montreux Jazz Festival, Moods - Zurich or Berlin's A-Trane. 

Giana was invited to sing on various Brazilian popular TV shows ("Ensaio" - TV Cultura, "Som Brasil" , "Programa do J" - TV Globo) and she won many awards (Ita Cultural, Sesi, Best Song at Ribeiro Pretos Festival).

Giana was at AME (Cabo Verde - 2014) to showcase her music.

"ORUM brings timeless songs, astonishing rhythms and melodies.
This sound has ancestral roots, touches the music erudits universe and vigorously flirts with jazz. Its and old-new Music which cultural parameters are on second plan and the search is to sublimate styles in a constant desire of embracing the most true essence of Music."
Letieres Leite

On her show case at Womex Giana will perform with Gustavo Marque no acoustic guitar, Ldson Galter on upright bass and Vitor Cabral at Atabaqueria, hand made drumset.
