Carol Saboya Carol Saboya

It has always been a musical environment. Carol Saboya, the composer Antônio Adolfo's daughter, was raised surrounded by inspired chords, scribbled scores and songs being born: The art in its full creation process.

When she was eight, she had her voice recorded for the first time along with Miéle for the compact disc A menina e a TV. When she was still a little girl, she took part as a vocalist in albums of Erasmo Carlos and Ângela Ro Ro. She also took part in the historical musical presentation Verde que te quero ver and infantile soundtracks.

She spent three years studying singing in the United States, taking part in Sérgio Mendes' Brasileiro CD. After returning to Brazil, she made a recording with the North American pianist Joyce Collins and participated in a tribute to Aldir Blanc, who was moved to listen to Carol featuring the song Carta de pedra at Canecão. The girl with that sweet voice and impeccable tuning started getting the media's attention.

Carol's expected solo work came in 1998. Dança da voz, produced by Almir Chediak, awarded Carol the 1998's as new vocalist by “Prêmio Sharp”. On the following year, she jumped into Tom Jobim's work and recorded the album Janelas abertas, accompanied by Nelson Faria's guitar.

In 2000, it is time to make a collective unconscious visit with the cinematographic repertoire of Sessão Passatempo. In the same year, she featured Imaginária by Suely Mesquita and Mário Sève in the Brazilian Music Festival (Festival da Música Brasileira) promoted by 'TV Globo'.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
