Brazilian Born Singer, Composer and Pianist Claudia Villela from Rio de Janeiro pays a Tribute to Elis Regina, flavored with her own remarkable original compositions. The last time Claudia played the tribute to Elias Regina in Santa Cruz it sold out four days in advance. Get your tickets or make your reservations now.
Claudia Villela’s voice gets all the attention, and it’s easy to understand why. Her glorious five-octave instrument is one of the wonders of jazz, lithe and startlingly beautiful in every register. Born and raised in Rio de Janeiro, she sings mostly in Portuguese, interpreting lyrics with keen emotional insight and supple rhythmic command. A supremely inventive scat singer, she has honed a vivid vocabulary of sounds that can evoke the hollow thump of a tabla drum, the muted trumpet of Miles Davis, the insistent twang of a berimbau, the ethereal call of a flute, or the Stratocaster licks of Jimi Hendrix.
Elis Regina was one of the most ferociously talented singers to emerge from Brazil. She commanded the respect of Brazil's leading songwriters, who lined up for the chance to have her record one of their songs, and for much of her short life was the country's most popular female vocalist.
