Originally from Sao Paolo, now living in Lisbon, Portugal, singer Adriana Miki, at a very young age, found herself irresistibly drawn to music. “Music has been part of my soul since before I could walk, “Adriana recalls. ”As a child playing under the stairs it would be all around me, adding tone and color to my world, making my heart beat faster. Time passed and I grew up. During my whole life I had music as part of every moment, in my happiness, my fears, my passions, my solitude. And I sang. But it was always just for me.” If singing came naturally to Adriana, performing did not. “I think deep down I had a fear of the powerful emotion that singing stirred in me,” she continues. “It would take hold of me and give me the strength to overcome any sadness. And so I continued like this for a long time, singing for myself. I crossed oceans and eventually couldn’t run any longer from that which I truly desired, couldn’t deny any longer that which I truly am. And so I decided to express myself, singing all that is inside of me.
