Biography

I am an italian jazz singer who fell in love with music at the age of 12 with the help of my father that is a great rock guitarist,so I grew up listening to Genesis,Led Zeppelin,Weather Report,Deep Purple,Jimi Hendrix,Beatles,Rolling Stones,etc...
I studied and collaborated with many incredible jazz musicians from all over the world,and everyone left something in my heart.I started to sing jazz standards because of Ella Fitzgerald,Dinah Washington,Sarah Vaughan,Carmen McRae,Anita O'Day,Billie Holiday,Betty Carter,Cassandra Wilson,Kurt Elling,Mark Murphy inspired me with their wonderful voices and then I discovered that there was more than I expected in this music...there was Freedom,so I started to compose my own original music with this idea of freedom,out of any rules to find myself.Music comes to me from every part of the world,I have a lot of influences from jazz to brazilian,Antonio Carlos Jobim,Caetano Veloso,Joao Gilberto,Chico Buarque,Vinicius De Moraes,Gal Costa,Elis Regina,Maria Bethania,and also I love the Cuban Songwriter Silvio Rodriguez,and what can I say about Mercedes Sousa or Astor Piazzola and the great Tango history? and I like to put all of them together to find my voice.
My band is my family,great musicians and lovely guys which I can share my thoughts,my feelings and my soul,and I am a very lucky girl. Usually the band is composed by voice ,piano,double bass ,drums and sax or trumpet.

Lyrics

IN A MOMENT

Written By: Marta Kap

Everything around me
tells me about you,
a different kind of love
for everyone of you…
in my restless days
I forget important things
But after the storm
I won’t be alone

In a moment
You are here
Every tear dries away
I remember
What you said
And your smile
Lights me up

AND I LOOK FOR YOU

Written By: Marta Kap

I look for you tonight
Down this road I hope to see you,
There are so many lights
In this night so cold
But I can’t see them,
I know all my wrongs
And I hope that you’ll love me still
So I’m waiting for this train alone

On streets that I don’t know
The hours are passing by
And I look for you
I’d like to go away
But when you are not with me,
I feel so frail
Lost in my foolishness and now
I miss everything about you...

LA VOZ DE MI ALMA

Written By: Marta Kap - Iris Cartia

Siento
las manos del viento
la lluvia y su canto
que llaman a mi alma,
para que sepa
que el cielo esta en cerca
que el mundo se abre todo a su cancion
quiero ir
por donde llegue el mara
hasta la luna y el sol
llevada por tu voz
sabes que
no hay nada mas qué hacer
yo con el viento voy
sin manos
sin mirar
sin saber
a donde llegaré

Y cada dia muere y renace
olvidando el ayer
como si supera que no hay nada mas que ahora
todas las palabras desvanecen y se vuelven aire

la la
la la
la la
la la la la

quedan solo
tu Mirada
y las sombras
de la luna
la incosciencia
de la noche
y los pasos
de mi vida

Lo que soy
Vulve a ser
Rosas con espinas
Rutas,calles,y colinas
Piedras
Nubes
Y goats de lluvia
Bajan
Se llevan el canto
El ritmo
La voz de mi alma
Que se llena
Que se llena
