The New Voice of Brazilian Jazz

O Globo depicts her as "the great hope in the renewal of the Brazilian music" while the German weekly Die Zeit greets her as having the "presence of a Star". Her "warm and caressing voice" of an "extremely wide register", her "impressive singing skills", her "charming delicacy" are widely praised throughout the international press.

Viviane De Farias' talent has earned her the label of "one of the top Brazilian singers" abroad. After having lent her voice to more than many projects in both Classical and Brazilian music with heavy weights such as Zubin Mehta, Kurt Masur and Placido Domingo, Viviane de Farias is now presenting her long awaited début CD Moment of Passion.

Moment of passion bunches the different aspects of Viviane de Farias' amazing artist journey. Born in Rio de Janeiro, she grew up in Ipanema, the cradle of Bossa Nova and Samba, before she studied theatre and classical music in Brazil, USA and Germany.

With the recording of Na Hora da Paxiao, the title song written by Bossa Nova Legend Johnny Alf and Paulo Morello, Viviane de Farias indisputably reveals her musical roots and her Alma Brasileira, the Brazilian soul, mixture of longing, passion and melancholy. Her interpretation of songs by modern Brazilian composers Guinga and Ivan Lins shows how much she masters the wide repertoire of Musica Popular Brasileira with charm and elegance. Thanks to her impressive singing skills, combined with the elaborate and refined arrangements by Morello & Barth Moment of Passion goes off the beaten tracks.
