Celia Malheiros

Celia Malheiros's music is unique. A prolific composer, songwriter, multi- instrumentalist and impressive singer, Celia is self-taught, eclectic, rooted in the myriad of folkloric sounds of her native Brazil and equally immersed in the universality of the music from her adopted country – American jazz.

Born and raised in Rio de Janeiro, since early childhood Celia was immersed in the world of Candomblé (an Afro-Brazilian religion), the schools of samba, bossa nova, choro, baião, frevo and indigenous music, as well as Tropicalia and political revolutionary movements. By the age of 18, Celia was completely supporting herself through music – she composed, she played at festivals, theatrical productions, nightclubs, radio and TV shows, she scored films, taught music and led bands performing her music.
