Vanessa aka "Nessa~V" - Singer/Songwriter/Percussionist/Dancer/Capoeirista

Vanessa grew up in a musical environment, which allowed her to become a skilled multi disciplined performing artist. Her musical career began at the age of 5 with her first show at the Vancouver Play House as part of their Coffee Concert Series. Ever since then Vanessa decided that she wanted to be a performer. As she grew up she played an active role in Aché Brasil and studied Capoeira and Brazilian percussion. At the age of seventeen she was invited to be the lead vocalist for the group, allowing her to step out of the background as a dancer/percussionist and develop her talent as a vocalist. To this date she has traveled across Canada and the United States performing at all types of festivals for very diverse audiences.

Some of her recent credits include: The PNE, The Yale Town Street Party (2006 and 2007), the closing show at The Vancouver Jazz Festival, and Casa Verde Brazilian Carnival 2007. Other recent credits include: being featured in many music videos for groups such as the Rascals and Transfiguration. Her martial arts work has also her allowed her to be featured in the locally filmed television series Stargate and Electra, as well as some feature films. Vanessa’s credits also include live Capoeira demos for Much Music and Much More Music, as well as YTV, which were broadcast across Canada.

For the past two year Vanessa has been attending VCC and Douglas College in Vancouver working on formalizing her musical skills and honing her talent. She continues to teach Samba and train in martial arts. Thusly allowing her to create a unique genre:
A new sound that fuses edgy R&B hip-hop sounds with exotic Brazilian Rhythms.
