“Do Lado Azul” is a music project originated by Sheyla Costa, a multi-talented artist
who created a comic book character SYLA BRASA, extraterrestrial singer who lands on earth to
embellish the blue planet.
When Sheyla Costa becomes SYLA, when the philosophical project she brings about
carries us towards a better horizon, “on the blue side” is not merely the encounter of a
talented artist and her creation, it is an path being offered, for Sheyla Costa is a guide,
offering us SYLA BRASA to lead us toward the Best.

Syla Brasa embraces several causes: that of different, excluded people, that do not fit into the
imposed “norm”. She is also involved in environmental matters, saving nature from

the color of imagination, dream, and enchantment.
Syla has one and only goal: to purify the spirit through music.

“The real musician’s technique is sound, personality is rhythmic placement… As a feline,
Sheyla Costa makes us land on the blue side, closer to the essence of singing and dancing.” Jean Pierre MAS, pianist (Claude Nougaro, Pierre Barouh).

Syla came along to be heard and read. On stage she is vibrant, jovial and everyone
adores her. In comics, she is charismatic and touches an adult audience as well as
children. Comic books are an original creation and will be transformed into cartoons. - Jean Louis Courleux

in Olinda (Brazil), Sheyla Costa begins her career as a singer at the age of 9,
in a television show for children hosted by Paulo Marques in Recife. Sheyla was
noticed right away and invited to sing every week-end for a year at happy hours
of « Champagne » Boa Viagem’s hotel nightclub in Recife, a quite
popular place in the 80’s.

This is
where she acquired her first scenic experience by being confronted to a
adolescent irreverent and demanding audience who ends up making her a true

At the age
of 16 and after 4 years of intense work with her exuberant dancer friend Paulo
Kitaka, young Sheyla Costa becomes a known dancer in Recife. However, she seeks
to explore every artistic domain and in particular theater at the age of 17.
She works with Cristiano Lins productions in Recife for two years and was
warmly cheered and approved by the audience and press.

Sheyla Costa
starts teaching herself guitar in 1993, which inevitably leads her to write and
compose her own music. Her career starts admirably as she wins the young
composers festival of Recife in April 1996, and records her first demo at SONY
with André Lobao (guitarist and composer) acting as her artistic director. That
same year, Sheyla Costa decides to move to France. She studies musicology at
Pierre Mendés France University in Grenoble where she wins another university
festival, and records a second demo at Studio III in Grenoble. She tours all
over France with a group of confirmed musicians.

October 2006, she performs on Parisian stages (Sunset, Baiser Salé, Satellit
Café, The Comedy Club, La Bellevilloise, Le Blue note, Charlie Birdy, Espace
Henry Miller, l’Etage, La Maison Blanche, etc..) In 2008, she records her first
5-song EP. In 2009 she performs as headline at Jazzmandu festival. In December
2009 she records her second EP, this time with 6 tracks.

Still in 2010 Sheyla Costa
recorded a tv program with
Pierre Barouh, great author and composer. On this same occasion, she met the
pianist Jean-Pierre Mas (former pianist of Claude Nougaro and current pianist
of Barouh) with whom she recorded a song, "Bonheur", and in 2011 she
wrote three songs for the cd "Latinalma”, distributed by the french label
Harmonia Mundi and considered one of the best albums of the year.

Sheyla Costa was part of national TV
shows (Des Mots de Minuit, France2) as well as radio shows (Un mardi idéal,
France Musique / Neo Geo by Bintou from Radio Nova in Paris).

Sheyla Costa also composes music
for film and advertising which can be found on her web store called
"Shesounds". She has released a first record with "Nova
Nota", a synchronisation specialist.
